“Raven’s Nest“, Acadia National Park — Schoodic Peninsula, a dramatic, unmarked and unpromoted promontory just off the 6-mile (one-way) Park Loop. Well worth the 50 or 60 yard ‘hike’ from the road. Yes, it is dangerous but so are other places in Acadia. Ask a local as to the exact directions. In September 2014 when we went we had to follow the “0.4 miles from a 35 mph” direction BUT I hear that the Park Service keeps on moving the 35 mph sign to deter visitors. Yes, there is a small parking spot for cars on the other side of the road. Easy to miss unless another car is parked there. IF the car has Maine plates you know you are at the right place! Thanks to Jim Close of “Acadia View” Bed & Breakfast (where we stayed) for giving us detailed directions on how to get there.
