We’ll be watching, too. If we see something fresh, fun, and innovative that depicts something about Acadia that most people don’t get to experience very often, we’ll ask to share it, too. Read More

Anthony J. Bopp and Francheska Miranda, of Mahopac, NY, share this video clip from their Nov 4 trek of the Precipice Trail. Park rangers encourage visitors to view this footage as a timely, cautionary reminder to take care on challenging trails as seasons and weather conditions change. Be prepared for early darkness. Ice grippers, cleats, and traction footwear can have little effect on slick, underlying granite surfaces. Trekking poles are highly encouraged. As winter approaches, please consider exploring Ship Harbor, Ocean Path, and available carriage roads. (Video courtesy of Anthony J. Bopp @anthonyjbopp. Used with permission.)
