Schoodic Head is the highest point in Acadia National Park on the Schoodic Peninsula in Maine. At 440 feet, it provides spectacular views of the trees on the peninsula, Frenchman Bay and its islands, and of course, the majestic Mount Desert Island including Cadillac Mountain.

As you approach West Pond Cove while driving south on the Park road, you will note a single lane dirt and gravel road on the left. This winds up the slope until it reaches the summit of Schoodic Head. If you drive, please drive slowly and watch for other vehicles and people hiking or biking along the road.

The commanding view from Schoodic Head is well worth the trek. On a good weather day, this can be a very peaceful setting with no park amenities or services provided.
