'Tis the season.

Beginning Friday, December 1st, the Park Loop Road within Acadia National Park will be closed to motorized vehicles.  Certain sections of the Road will remain open, including the two-mile section from the Sand Beach entrance pay-station to the Otter Cliff Road.

Eventually, snowmobiles will be allowed on the closed sections.

Hikers, runners, roller skaters and bladers are allowed to use the Road.

Officials remind us that Park information can be obtained at the Bar Harbor Chamber Of Commerce Visitor Center at 2 Cottage Street in Bar Harbor.  Acadia National Park Headquarters on the Eagle Lake Road remains closed.
