The Schoodic Peninsula section of Acadia National Park is a small disjunct part of the park just east and across Frenchman Bay from Bar Harbor.  The Schoodic Peninsula is just south of the town of Winter Harbor, about a 45 minute drive from Bar Harbor.

A one way loop road travels along the coastline of the peninsula.  There are also a few short trails that ascend the 440 ft Schoodic Head, as well as the much small hill called the Anvil.  A side road goes to the Schoodic Point parking area where the rocky coast is more exposed to the open ocean than on Mount Desert Island because of fewer offshore islands.
