Acadia National Park protects the natural beauty of the highest rocky headlands along the Atlantic coastline of the United States, an abundance of habitats with high biodiversity, clean air and water, and a rich cultural heritage. Each year, more than 3.3 million people explore seven peaks above 1,000 feet, 158 miles of hiking trails, and 45 miles of carriage roads with 16 stone bridges.

Crowds of visitors in the summer and, increasingly, into the fall and spring, are making it difficult for people to experience the best of Acadia. Crowded conditions in the park also cause safety hazards. The public has 60 days, from April 27 to June 26, 2018 to provide input to all alternatives in a Draft Transportation Plan / Environmental Impact Statement. Learn more at http://go.nps.gov/AcadiaPlan
