Forty-five miles of rustic carriage roads, the gift of philanthropist John D. Rockefeller Jr. and family, weave around the mountains and valleys of Acadia National Park. The well-marked roads wander through Acadia covering long, shady stretches of woodland, skirting peaceful lakes and ponds, circling mountain sides, and showcasing breathtaking views. Rockefeller, a skilled horseman, wanted to travel on motor-free byways via horse and carriage into the heart of Mount Desert Island. His construction efforts from 1913 to 1940 resulted in an intricate network of roads and 17 spectacular stone bridges. Today the roads are open to the public for walking, biking, or horse drawn carriages but are still closed to motor vehicles.
