From Bar Harbor, Maine, on Mount Desert Island, ride from Route 3 and enter Acadia National Park on 27-mile Park Loop Road. For a fee ($20 for a 7-day motorcycle park pass), you can then ride clockwise on the mostly one-way picturesque loop that meanders around lakes, rivers, and woodlands, and opens up to offer views of Maine's coastline.

There are plenty of pull-offs along Park Loop Road. Here, I parked and walked an easy pathway that led me to a view of Sand Beach, popular because of its incredible, Caribbean-blue-like water. Being able to stop to hike and swim makes this one of my all-time favorite East Coast rides.

Just past Eagle Lake on Park Loop Road, turn right onto Summit Road, which is a twisty 3.5 mile ascent to Cadillac Mountain. At 1,530 feet, this is the highest point on the north Atlantic seaboard, and the first place you can see the sun rise in America!


Now we'd love to hear from you! Tell us in the comments section below if you've ridden any of these roads or what your favorite ones are on the east coast.
