Leave No Trace

Leave No Trace

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO ■  Learn about and respect the spaces we all own but share with others ■  Bring along reusable water bottles or hot drink tumblers to limit waste and stay hydrated.

STICK TO TRAILS ■  There are over 150 miles of trails to select from in Acadia National Park. Add to this the famous Carriage Roads, and the Acadia explorer has a wide selection of enjoyable options.

LEAVE IT AS YOU FIND IT ■  Leave plants, rocks and historical items as you find them so others experience the joy of discovery.

TRASH THE TRASH ■  Pack it in, pack it out. Put litter, even crumbs, peels and cores in your nearest waste/recycling bin.

KEEP WILDLIFE WILD ■  Maine is home to a variety of furry and feathered creatures some active in the winter as well as summer. To keep them – and you – safe, don’t approach them. ■  Keep your furry canine buddies leashed when enjoying dog-friendly trails, and pack out their waste.

SHARE OUR TRAILS & PARKS ■  Silence your cell phone before stepping into nature, and speak softly without using the speaker function. ■  Be considerate when passing others on the trails and yield to the uphill hiker or skier.
