From the first place in the U.S. to see the morning sun to an oceanfront peninsula, this drive showcases the timeless beauty of Maine’s coast.
The Journey: Cadillac Mountain to Schoodic Point, ME
Distance: 96 miles
Elevation Range: 1,529 feet to sea level
Vehicle: Range Rover HSE Td6
In a departure from the other drives in this collection, this one moves from a high elevation to a lower one. Tourists gather on Cadillac Mountain, the first place in the U.S. to see the sunrise and the starting point for this journey. Leaving the crowd behind, and engaging Hill Descent Control (HDC®) down Cadillac Mountain, the route weaves through mountains and lakes to Park Loop Road and Otter Creek.
Heading south on Stanley Brook Road in Acadia National Park, the road leads to one of many carriage-road bridges. Built in the early 20th century, they were designed with beauty and functionality in mind. With twin-needle-stitched leather upholstery, polished metal finishers and responsibly sourced wood veneers, the Range Rover exhibits a similar level of artisanship.
Taking in the view of the forest from the retractable roof, it’s easy to see why people find solace here.
Continuing the drive through Maine’s backroads, Electronic Air Suspension helps smooth out the curves and bumps along the way. The advanced 254 hp diesel engine has the power required, yet it’s as quiet and smooth as a gasoline engine, creating a calm environment to enjoy the road ahead.
Lighthouse Road, unsurprisingly, leads to the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, a suitable spot for a pause in the drive. Like the Range Rover, it is a place both beautiful in its simplicity and timeless in its design.
This drive finishes at Schoodic Point, which is, according to the InControl® compass feature, at sea level. Looking west, the sun sets over Cadillac Mountain, the starting point of the 96-mile journey. The light show is beyond beautiful. Paired with the Range Rover, it makes an impressive scene.
