So many things to see and do along the Park Loop Road. At times it is a one way road and cars are allowed to park in the right lane so be aware. It is a beautiful 27 mile ride!

There is sufficient space between the road and the edge as well as a guardrail, way less chance of going over than the PCH! I know what she means there! Have a great trip! Bar Harbor is one of my fav places!
