Destination guide

A gateway to Acadia National Park

Trenton, on Maine's northernmost Atlantic shore, is a picturesque gateway to the beautiful Acadia National Park. Caressed by breezy Atlantic currents and nestled on the tree-lined, rocky shore of the Mount Desert Narrows, Trenton is the last stop before the roadway to Mount Desert Island, Frenchman Cove and Bar Harbor. Choose a Trenton vacation rental to explore this idyllic coastal region, spend long lunches in rustic lobster restaurants and hike some of the most beautiful trails in the USA in Acadia National Park.

Things to do

Family fun in Trenton

Trenton has a small waterpark and amusement park with go-karts – great if you're staying at your Trenton vacation rental with kids. The majority of local shops and nightlife can be found across the narrows at Bar Harbor, including Mount Desert Island's only vineyard and winery. This pretty coastal town offers plenty of fun family activities. Hire a kayak to paddle around the bay or book tickets on a lobster boat tour or whale-watching excursion. Depending on the season, you might spot humpback whales, as well as porpoises, seals, dolphins or North Atlantic puffins.


Unique beach experiences in Trenton

Visit the Acadia National Park visitor center in Trenton or on the tiny Thompson Island as you cross over to Mount Desert Island to pick up trail maps and family-friendly nature guides. Once across, Sand Beach – framed by tree-covered spits of rock – makes for a picture-perfect pirate cove. On sunny days, take a picnic and brave the chilly waters for a fab family day out. Here, you can pick up the Great Head Trail for a short but challenging hike with commanding ocean views.
