About Acadia National Park

Acadia is located in Maine (ME) in the northeast region of the United States. The climate goes up and down just like our weather in Massachusetts. For example, in the winter it is freezing and in the summer it is hot, hot, hot! As you stride along the beaches you will notice Acadias breathtaking mountains reflecting off the gleaming salt water. If you are a daring climber, you will love climbing Cadillac mountain, the tallest mountain in Acadia!

Mountain Formation

Billions of years ago, the land we now call Acadia was flat. Then a couple hundred years later, glaciers started moving across the island. Soon they started sliding down steep hills which made valleys. As the valleys became deeper the hills got taller, which soon made mountains.

That is how the Acadia mountains were formed. You wouldn’t even believe that these mountains were once tiny little hills!
