High tide was in, and the wave crashing into the cliffs was so breath taking. How ever very peaceful also. Great place to gather energy. A must on the to do list.

This was a very nice loop drive you can do. I suggest going to the Reverse Falls at high tide and watch the seals "Sea Dogs" play and eat as the water comes back into the river from the ocean.

This place does not get the credit it deserves. It is at least, if not more, beautiful than Acadia National Park. The loop drive is shorter than Acadia, but the views are spectacular. It is a longer drive to get here (about an hour from...More
