Close to nature and free from motorized vehicles, Acadia’s wide, broken-stone roads traverse impressive granite bridges and blend with the landscape, highlighting the stunning scenery. When biking on this or other carriage roads in the park, hybrid or mountain bikes are recommended. Also, keep in mind that the carriage roads are not one-way streets; feel free to turn around and retrace your steps at any point.
