Carriage Roads, Acadia National Park

#2 of 12 in Trails in Acadia National Park
Biking Trail · Nature / Park
Hike or bike in pristine nature along Carriage Roads, closed to motorized vehicles. Funded by oil magnate John D. Rockefeller, who personally oversaw their construction between 1919 and 1931, the roads lead through thick native forests and cross stone bridges. You can combine hiking with canoeing in the summer period. Most roads are open for cross-country skiing or snowmobiles in the wintertime, but it's a good idea to check the website for any weather-related closures before you make your plans. A visit to Carriage Roads represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Acadia National Park online trip planner to plot your vacation.
