Loop Road To Open

ACADIA NAT’L PARK — On April 15, both the Park Loop Road and the Hulls Cove Visitor Center will open for the season. Park crews recently shoveled snow off the steps at the Visitor Center and have been removing snow and ice from the Loop Road.

Deputy superintendent Len Bobinchock expects that these efforts plus the recent rain and expected warmer weather should ensure that both open next Wednesday. In the early season, the hours for the Visitor Center are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

At least one lane of the Ocean Drive portion of the Park Loop Road has been open all winter.
