High Vista is just a few minutes drive from world famous Acadia, one of the country's most visited national parks. The park encompasses 35,000 acres of beautiful seacoast, rocks, islands, forest, lakes and mountains. The diverse geological features of Mount Desert Island fashion a cornucopia of spectacular natural beauty. Unlike the grand spacious national parks of the west, Acadia's concentrated glacial formations rise up out of the ocean, gracing this small island with a plethora of scenic wonders that reveal themselves at each bend of the road and trail. Acadia's Park Loop Road is the region's most scenic drive with numerous points of interest that make it the undisputed "center piece" MDI attraction.
Mount Desert Island's mountains, ocean, and lakes support a wide range of recreational activities including hiking, mountain climbing, sightseeing, swimming, boating, fishing, water sports, biking, horseback riding, dining, bird watching, and more. The carriage roads, themselves a work of wonder and stonework, along with numerous well marked hiking trails, present an astonishing variety of scenic natural beauty. Despite its relatively small size, the list of attractions and activities of MDI seem a bit like the Eveready Bunny; they just keep going, and going, and going...
