This week in the vlog, we drive north to spend a weekend hiking in Acadia National Park in Maine. Join us for day 1 of our trip for breathtaking fall colors and a beautiful hike around Jordan Pond.
Acadia National Park is located about 5 hours north of Boston and 2.5 hours north of Portland, ME. It is a very popular travel destination during the peak fall colors season for people throughout the East Coast. If you plan to go to Acadia National Park to see the fall colors, we recommend you plan far ahead of time for accommodations and park reservations (which is needed during peak fall season for certain parts of the park). We ended up staying about 45 minutes outside of the national park because we booked like 2 weeks in advance.
Jordan Pond is one of the more popular hikes in Acadia National Park, and we quickly saw why! The path had an amazing opening view when coming down from the parking lot, and the fall colors were beautiful throughout the hike, especially when seeing them next to the lake. The hike was 3 miles long, but was flat the whole way which made for an easy walk.
