Check out these easy winter adventures in Acadia National Park

With snow-dusted granite peaks and icicle-adorned sea cliffs, Acadia National Park holds a special beauty in the winter. And while some roads are closed, much of the park remains easily accessible for a variety of outdoor activities such as cross-country skiing, ice skating and snowshoeing.

Acadia was named as one of America’s top 20 prettiest national parks in the winter by The Wilderness Society. And it has made it on several similar lists of destinations to visit in the winter. Yet visitation to Acadia is far lower in the winter than any other time of year. So if you’re looking to avoid crowds, it’s the perfect time to visit.

“Winter in Acadia is magical,” said Lisa Horsch Clark, director of development and donor relations for Friends of Acadia. “It’s nice that people still come here in the winter because they get to see it in a much less congested time, and I feel you get a deeper connection to the park when you don’t have as many people around. It’s just you and the mountains and the trees and the sky.”
