Hiking Cadillac Mountain in the Winter

Cadillac Mountain is a wonderful winter hike in Acadia National Park

Acadia National Park is a popular tourist destination in the summer which is why we like to take full advantage in the winter. It’s so nice to be alone at the summit to Cadillac Mountain in the winter!

How to access Cadillac Mountain in the winter

You’ll want to park off Eagle Lake Road, at the park entrance. You can park before the gate, walk through the gate and across the bridge where you’ll pick up the Kebo Brook Trail. You’ll take the Kebo Brook Trail until you hit the North Ridge trail to Cadillac Mountain.

    Is this because the park loop road is closed there? I was looking earlier and All Trails has you start on the park loop road that the North Ridge Trail head?
