Just Go to Acadia National Park - Hiking the Bubbles Trail

It wasn’t until our most recent visit to Acadia National Park that it really hit us how many different hiking trails there are in this amazing piece of landscape on the Maine coast.  In our recent visit, we were able to finally take on one of the park’s most sought-after hikes, the Bubbles Trail.  While it can be a bit of a challenge to get parking during the peak times of day, we highly recommend taking this hike.  As it only takes a little over 90 minutes, the hike up the Bubbles will only take up part of your day and the views are totally worth the effort!
