The 45 miles of carriage roads in Acadia are for hikers, bikers, horse riders and carriage drivers - no motor vehicles are allowed. The ten miles of carriage roads outside the park are for hikers, horse riders and carriage drivers, no bikes or motor vehicles allowed.

The carriage roads are spectacularly scenic and feature 16 beautiful granite stone bridges. The entire system was built by park patron John D. Rockefeller Jr between 1916 and 1940.  Rockefeller also largely funded the creation of the motor road that circles the park.

Traditional sightseeing carriage rides are available on the Carriage Roads  from a park concession located at Acadia's Wildwood Stables.The carriage rides are very popular and reservations are advisable and available up to one week in advance by calling 207-276-3622
