Watch for Heavy Equipment

Cutting crews are hard at work across Acadia. If you're exploring and enjoying the Schoodic Peninsula Loop, or portions of the Park Loop Road on Mount Desert Island that are otherwise closed to motor vehicle traffic during winter, please keep your eyes and ears open for heavy machinery, and rangers wielding chainsaws.

Visitors wearing masks near information stations
Please help keep park rangers and other visitors healthy by wearing a mask and respecting social distancing guidelines.
