Acadia’s 36,000 acres include portions of Schoodic Point and Isle au Haut, which has a trail to the summit of Mount Champlain, with an elevation of 400 feet. Other Mt. Desert Island peaks include Beech Mountain, Cadillac Mountain, Dorr Mountain, Flying Mountain, Gorham Mountain, Pemetic Mountain, Penobscot Mountain, and Sargent Mountain.
