Maps, Online and on Paper
Pick them up at Chamber businesses and the Visitor Center
or get them from our store.
Quietside Trail Map
The Chamber prints an up-to-date map of hiking and cycling trails on the Quietside. The map also includes tide tables for Southwest Harbor, the time of sunrise and sunset, and the current phase of the moon. The map is available at our Visitor Center and at many Chamber businesses.
Carriage Road Map
The Chamber also publishes the definitive map of Acadia's carriage roads showing all the intersections and bridges. On the back are elevation profiles for each road that you can use to gauge the difficulty of a route. The map is available at our Visitor Center and at some Chamber businesses.
Park Loop Road Map
The Park Loop Road Map is the latest addition to the Chamber's map collection. It points out highlights along Acadia's spectacular 27-mile drive, from coastal rocky shores, through tree-filled valleys, to the awe-inspiring top of Cadillac Mountain. The map is widely available at visitor centers and businesses around MDI.
Official Park Service Map
The "official" map of Acadia, published by the Park Service, gives a good overview of the park. It is fine for driving, but for hiking or cycling it is better to use a more detailed map like the Quietside Trail Map, the Carriage Road Map, or a specialized guidebook.
MDI Business Locator Map
Widely used and distributed around the island, the Business Locator puts a good road map of MDI in a compact form. It shows the location of many island businesses.
Stargazing on MDI
As there are no major cities on the downeast coast of Maine, MDI is a great place for observing the night sky. The Quietside turns out also to be the dark
side. Two College of the Atlantic students, Nicholas Bacon and Apoorv Ghelot, working with the Astronomy Institute of Maine and COA's GIS Lab, created this map showing the amount of ambient light at night.
