Riding in Maine's Mount Desert National Park

Acadia National Park is one of the most beautiful places in America. There the mountains meet the sea and the views are unsurpassed. John D. Rockefeller, Jr., constructed a 51-mile carriage road system for his personal use early in the 20th century. He later presented them as a gift to the people of the United States. No motorized vehicles are allowed. The stone bridges are so pretty, they remind me of those on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The trails are arranged in loops, with many intersections so you can choose different directions. They go by lakes, up mountains that have lookouts to the ocean, through deep woods and by rushing streams. The terrain is challenging, but the views are well worth the climbs; and the ride down is wonderful.

Check out Mr. Kenyon Karl's webpage on these trails, Carriage Roads of Acadia National Park. You will find excellent detailed information there. Copyright 2007, All Rights Reserved Copyright 2007, All Rights Reserved
