It provides access to a number of interesting features: Sand Beach, partially formed of shell fragments; Great Head, one of the highest sheer Atlantic headlands in the United States; Thunder Hole, a wave-cut chasm producing loud reverberations when waves and tide are right; Otter Cliff and Otter Point, with a dense forest that extends to the edge of the sea; and Cadillac Mountain, with its stunning views. Time: Allow 3 hours, 30 minutes minimum.
