Anyone know of an online trail map?

I'm considering visiting Acadia with my young kids, and I've been reading about all the great suggested easy hikes on this forum I'd like to be able to see them on a trail map, especially the recommended hikes that include following multiple trails, before I decide if the kids are old enough for this yet. Does anyone have a link to an online version of a trail map? I would certainly buy one if we decide to go, but I'd like to preview one online before I take the plunge.

I'm not aware of a good online trail map for Acadia N.P.

MapAdventures, <http://www.mapadventures.com> has, in my opinion, the best trail map at this time. They produce a paper version for $4.95 and a waterproof version for $9.95. The waterproof version has more descriptive detail regarding several of the hikes (20 or so); both versions provide "degree of difficulty" for the major trails.

The park site <http://www.nps.gov/acad> has a viewable map of the park with the major trails shown; it can give you an idea of the length of the trails but doesn't provide topographic information.

all of the good online maps require paying a membership fee so you will be much better off with a paper map.

OK, thanks for the responses. All the other parks I've been to have had good trail maps online that I was able to use for planning purposes.

Nothing beats a real life map, they are fun to look at anytime, but if you need a free trail map to give you a general idea try downloading 'Google Earth'. Its certainly not trail calibre but it does have mileages of the better known trails.
