From there, take the 6-mile [9.7-kilometer] one-way drive to Schoodic Point. The
massive granite rocks here are laced by black diabase dikes, the product of magma that welled up into cracks. Schoodic�s displays of thundering surf usually top those of Mt. Desert Island. And the audiences are much smaller; the peninsula does not draw crowds the way Mt. Desert does.
Continue on the drive and park opposite Little Moose Island. At low
tide, take the short walk through the intertidal puddles and muck to the island. A meandering path leads you seaward for a panoramic view of the Atlantic. Stay on the path to avoid damaging the fragile plants.
