Land trust donates 37-acre tract on Mount Desert Island to Acadia NP

A 37-acre tract of land along Lower Hadlock Pond on Mount Desert Island in Maine has been transferred to Acadia National Park thanks to the work of the Maine Coast Heritage Trust and Friends of Acadia.

The land includes 1,600 feet of frontage on the pond and a network of trails that has been used for quiet recreation for more than 100 years, according to a release from the two groups. Since 2005, FOA and MCHT have been working in partnership to raise money and acquire privately held lands inside Acadia’s boundaries as they become available from willing sellers.
