Must drive thru the park on Newfound. Absolutely spectacular and worth the time. Allow plenty of time especially during the busy season and look for the beautiful photo ops along the way.

What a beautiful gorgeous drive! I highly recommend it. Take your time & travel slow ( speed limit is only 35MPH) & stop at the numerous pull-offs for some dynamite views. It's only about 30 miles between the 2 visitor centers but this can take...More
