I’ll put in a plug for Katahdin

Amazing place. Flying into Bangor, it won’t be that long a drive. When I went, a buddy of mine and I car camped for two nights. Arrival day we did a short hike to chimney pond and a hill just above that, Day 2 was a long day hike loop over the top. I forget the trail names, but it was a counter clockwise loop over the summit. Day three was a quick run up a peak above the campground before leaving. With 3 days it could be much more leisurely. Only issue would be whether you could get campground space. It was nice to not have to drive on summit day.

Only downside would be that you probably can’t do that and Acadia unless you didn’t mind rushing and spending a lot of time in the car.

If interested, I can provide more details.
