I currently have 5 free Acadia National Park maps to view and download. The first 4 maps are what you’ll find on Acadia’s official brochure and the carriage road map (for biking and skiing) is available in the park visitor centers. Unfortunately there’s no free park-produced trail map, but below you’ll find the trail handout available in the visitor centers as well as a link to the best trail map you can purchase. PDF files always open in a new window.
Maps from the official park brochure:
This is the main Acadia National Park map, showing the majority of the park located on Mount Desert Island near Bar Harbor. Click the image to view a full size JPG (800 kb) or download the PDF (15 mb).
This is a map of Isle au Haut, a unit of Acadia accessible only by ferry. Click the image to view the full size JPG (100 kb) or download the PDF (500 kb).
This Acadia map is of the Schoodic Peninsula, a park unit to the east of Mount Desert Island. Click the image to view a full size JPG (100 kb) or download the PDF (500 kb).
This is an Acadia regional map showing the location of each of Acadia National Park’s units. Click the image to view a full size JPG (200 kb) or download the PDF (900 kb).
Acadia National Park trails maps:
There is no free Acadia trail map with as much information as the paid maps, but this nice trail handout has an overview of the hikes. Click the image to view a full size GIF (400 kb) or download the PDF (50 kb).
If you’re looking for a detailed Acadia trails map, I recommend the Map Adventures waterproof trail map. This map contains topographic lines and trail mileages, so it is much superior to the free Acadia maps posted above. It usually sells for under $10 on Amazon and is well worth the purchase if you’re going to do anything more than an easy walk. (I do not recommend the National Geographic Trails Illustrated Acadia map.)
Acadia National Park biking and ski map:
This is an Acadia carriage road map showing mileages on Rockefeller’s carriage roads, popular with those on foot, horseback, ski, and bicycle. Click the image to view a full size GIF (700 kb) or download the PDF (700 kb).
