“secret sea cave!”
Many years ago Anemone Cave in the heart of Acadia National Park was once one of the National Park's star attractions. People came from far and wide to hike down to this acient sea cave and explore its insides. But than the National Park Service decided to abandon the cave from the parks attractions. All sign's and railings that led down the cliff to the sea cave were removed, and in recent years, Anemone Cave has been removed from maps. It is very important to note that Anemone Cave is a sea cave and can only be entered at low tide. At high tide the cave is under water, so check and find out what time low tide is before making the trip. Take the trail to enter the cave from the left, and remember to wear sturdy shoes with good grips!
This was an awesome discovery for my boyfriend and I, because we didn't know it existed! We were lucky enough to be there at low tide. To find it, go to Schooner Head Overlook (there are signs for that, just not the cave itself). There's a short trail leading down the hill to the coast, right at the lighthouse. If you go at low tide, you'll see it near the bottom.
I wish this included the reasons I've read it was removed - because people were killing the wildlife and it is very dangerous. Please be careful, on both fronts, if you go. This blog post was helpful: http://goeast.ems.com/acadias-tidal-pools/
