Run The Planet is proud to introduce our new affiliate Run.com, the best running route resource on the web. If you are looking for a new Northeast Harbor running route, or want to share your favorite Northeast Harbor running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
Take the ferry from Northeast Harbor to Cranberry Island. It is a pleasant 25 minutes boat ride. Bring a picnic lunch. The paved Main Road is 2 miles from the town landing to where the road ends. An out and back run will give you a nice 4 mile run. You will pass 18th century fishing captains homes and quaint island dwellings. Take in all the side roads, mostly not paved and your run will add up to about 8 miles total out and back. Remember you are on an island all roads dead end at the ocean. After the run head to any beach for a relaxing picnic lunch. Excellent views of the mountains of Acadia National Park to the North and open ocean to the South.
