“The first place to see Sunlight in the US”
Cadillac Mountain is commonly believed to be the first location in the United States to be struck by the sun's rays each morning. Driving or hiking to the summit of Cadillac Mountain to see "the nation's first sunrise" is a popular activity among visitors of Acadia National Park. There are various hiking trails to the summit of Cadillac Mountain, some more challenging than others. There is also a paved road to the top.On a clear day, it is possible to see Mount Katahdin, Maine's highest mountain, to the north and the Canadian province of Nova Scotia to the east, both over one hundred miles away.
we woke up at 4:30 AM to watch the sunrise and it was the most beautiful thing i've ever seen. fog was rolling in and it was incredible with the light. after that you'll be hungry, but everywhere to eat will be closed til 8 AM so plan for that.
go at night and stare at the stars....wow...windy there all the time...
Beuatiful, you can drive to the top.
My husband and I went on our honeymoon to Bar Harbor and visited Cadillac Mt at sunrise. A little crowded but we found a path off the side and saw equally amazing views of the sunrise. After the sun came up we took a hike. Very peaceful in mid September. Colors are just starting to change too.
One of my favorite trips ever. Ocean view top of the mountain. Great trip, great time
