This year Acadia National Park annual passes will be available during Bar Harbor’s Early Bird Sale and Pajama Party. On November 18 from 6 to 9 a.m., the Acadia information site located on the Village Green next to the Bar Harbor police/fire station will be open to sell passes. Acadia annual passes, valid for one year from month of purchase, will be available for $20, half off the regular price. Help support a good cause. Eighty percent of each pass sale remains right here in Acadia National Park to be used for projects that directly benefit park visitors and resources. The remaining 20% benefits other National Park Service sites.

The regular annual sale will begin December 1 and run through December 30. Acadia National Park annual passes will again be available for half price, or just $20. They will be sold at the Winter Visitor Center at park headquarters on the Eagle Lake Road (Route 233) between 8 a.m.and 4:30 p.m. every day except December 24 and 25. They may be obtained in person with cash, check, Visa or MasterCard. No phone orders will be taken. For more gift ideas, take a look at the Acadia books, maps and more offered at the Winter Visitor Center.

New for this year: Acadia annual passes will be available for the sale price of $20 at the Gouldsboro Town Office, too. The sale will run from December 1 through December 30, as on Mount Desert Island. The office is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.  The office is closed on weekends and on December 25.  Passes may be paid for by check or cash only, not by credit card. No phone orders will be taken.

Acadia National Park contains more than 120 miles of historic hiking trails. Many of these trails were established by local village improvement societies in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Today many of the historic features, such as stonework, are still visible.
