To enjoy the magnificent but short-lived display of colors, my husband and I decided to visit Sieur de Monts, a place that’s known as the birthplace of the park. Located at the foot of Dorr Mountain, the area includes Sieur de Monts Spring, a nature center, the Wild Gardens of Acadia and the historic Abbe Museum. It’s also a starting point for some of the park’s oldest trails and memorial paths, which feature remarkable stonework.
