This is absolutely amazing! Warning, even in the hot summer months, you better take mittens, stocking caps, coats, blankets and anything to keep warm! It is so cold on top of this mountain! However, you will be the first people in the United States to see the sunrise and what an amazing Sunrise it is! It is totally worth getting up early to see it. Check the sunrise time before you go up so you know exactly what time to get there and set that alarm don't miss it!

I hired a taxi and did a private tour up Cadillac mountain! The view was amazing! I spent 30 minutes at the summit, and could've spent a lot more time!! Definitely a must see in Bar Harbor!

When you are in the mood for up, this is a good way to accomplish your cravings. It's up. Not as up as other ups. But it is reasonably up. More up, than down, one would say (except on the way down which is more down than up)


It can be wicked foggy but that isn't the mountains fault


It's a nice place to pray. Bathrooms are here. You don't have to wee your pants. That's important to know. You CAN bring your own toilet paper if you prefer a softer wiping experience.


Sunrise is chaos. Come early or don't complain that you can't find a place to park. I am serious. Enough complaints about the parking if you show up ten minutes before dawn. Not worth bothering in rain.

From top of the Cadillac Mountain you can get a panaromic view of the whole Acadia national park. There is bathroom and a small gift shop over there. But the price of every item in the gift shop is crazy crazy expensive. Bring a jacket because it becomes very cold some times. Its also very windy over there.
