Paddling Acadia National Park

There are numerous places to paddle in Acadia National Park. It would take a long time to paddle all of them. Since our time was limited to four days, we had to pick a couple of places to paddle and leave the rest to our next trip to Maine.

After consulting the book Quiet Water Maine we decided that we would paddle Seal Cove Pond and Echo Lake. As things turned out, this was a great decision.

We passed on some of the more popular paddling spots such as Jordan Pond. We thought about paddling Jordon Pond, but decided against it beacuse of the crowd.
