Acadia Quest is a fun and interactive way for families to explore Acadia National Park and meet park rangers. Now in its 14th edition, the experiential scavenger hunt expands this year to include “Storytellers of Acadia,” featuring six additional activities guided by interpretive rangers, education interns, and Summit Stewards.

Questing families download the free Acadia Quest app and adventure their way to interesting corners of the park, where they’ll uncover the stories intertwined with these special places. They’ll visit Pretty Marsh Picnic Area in the summer to see swimming seals or climb Jordan Cliffs Trail in the fall to enjoy incredible scenery and maybe a glimpse of a peregrine falcon. Other new sites include Connors Nubble, Jesup Path, Ship Harbor, and the Valley Trail.
