An outgrowth of a blog post we did about Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park’s first-ever Winter Festival and other activities, this page is part of an evolving series on services available to visitors of Acadia National Park, as well as to area residents.

The Schoodic section of Acadia, the only part of the park on the mainland, features dramatic coastline and hiking trails. The non-profit Schoodic Institute, in partnership with Acadia, runs the Schoodic Education and Research Center campus. Among the activities and programs offered by the institute year-round: birding trips, Artist-in-Residence program, and educational and scientific meetings.

The September 2015 opening of the park-run Schoodic Woods, featuring a seasonal campground, bike paths and hiking trails, also opens up new possibilities for outdoor winter activities.

Now that Schoodic Woods is open, with the trails available year-round for hiking, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing, even if the campground isn’t, it may be the perfect time for an off-season trip to Schoodic Peninsula.
