Enjoy Nature - Grand Marsh Bay is part of an extraordinary natural
environment. The Bay connects to the historical Cobb Marsh and
indirectly to Corea Heath. This ecologically unique complex plays
host to numerous rare and threatened plants and animals. The area
comprising Grand Marsh Bay is designated protected water fowl
feeding habitat, shorebird nesting habitat, and an area of
historical significance. It is common to see great blue herons in
the grasses of the marsh, or to see osprey or a bald eagle fly past.

Corea peninsula is rich with wildlife. Red foxes and porcupines can
be spotted along the roads at night, a beaver dam is located along
Grand Marsh Bay road, bears have crossed properties, and even a rare
coastal moose sighting is reported. The upland area is dominated by
spruce and birch with occurances of white pine, hemlock, and tamrack
typical of the woodlands in the region.

Visit Acadia National Park - Schoodic Peninsula: The only section of
Acadia located on the mainland, the park comprises a loop that
begins in Winter Harbor following the coast ending at Birch Harbor.
Just inside Acadia's boundaries is a picnic area with tables and
grills. Picnic surrounded by wild roses, explore the rocks along the
shore, watch sailboats tack across the waters while you eat. Bike to
Schoodic Point. Biking in Maine is great, but this small stretch of
road is extraordinary. The Schoodic Section of Acadia has a one-way
loop road that hugs the coast through the Park. Hike to the top of
Schoodic Head. Numerous trails lead to extraordinary views from
Schoodic's 400 ft summit. In addition, to a 360-degree survey of
Downeast Maine this small peak overlooking the Atlantic exposes
visitors to a sub-alpine ecological zone. Dwarf vegetation and low-
bush blueberry hug the thin, rocky soil. Cross the tidal land-bridge
to Little Moose Island.

Daytrip in Rustic Downeast Maine. : Drive along the forty-mile
Acadia Scenic Byway. Explore winter Harbor and the grand
Victorian 'cottages' of Grindstone Neck. Or, cruise the last stretch
of coastal Route 1 in the United States. Pass through the quiet
coastal towns of Stueben, Jonesport, and Machias. Enjoy endless
views and rolling blueberry barrens. Some say, Helen's in Machias
makes the best blueberry pies in the USA. Take an inland route home
passing through Cherryfield and other small towns. Visit nearby
Bartlett Maine Estate Winery for a tasting.

Drive or Take the Ferry to Mt. Desert Island.: A passenger ferry
connects Winter Harbor and Bar Harbor on Mt. Desert Island. The
Island Explorer bus service shuttles passengers free-of-charge to
numerous destinations throughout Acadia National Park and across the
Island. This service also operate between Winter Harbor-Birch Harbor-
Prospect Harbor on the Schoodic Peninsula. Bar Harbor has great
energy. It offers a large number of independent shops and
restaurants. The dining holds its own with any major city. It is a
commercial, yet charming town with an active daytime crowd and
equally active nightlife. Curiosities like the Whale Museum make Bar
Harbor an excellent place to visit. Visit Acadia National Park on
Mt. Desert - it will be a highlight of your trip. Drive or climb to
the top of Cadillac Mountain and see the entire region.
