Eagle Lake Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Like other lake and pond hikes in Acadia, the Eagle Lake Trail can be walked just for its water views or for the access it provides to nearby mountains. What we’ve found particularly special about this trail is the access it provides to the lesser-known Conners Nubble, just north of the highly popular Bubbles. And like other similar trails, the Eagle Lake Trail has its easy, flat sections and its rougher up-and-down sections."
--Dolores Kong & Dan Ring, Hiking Acadia National Park (Falcon Guides).
"Thanks to a Rockefeller, skiers and snowshoers now have about 50 miles of rustic carriages roads to glide around the mountains and lakes of Maine’s Acadia National Park. Philanthropist John D. Rockefeller Jr. was a skilled equestrian. He desired motor-free paths into the heart of Mount Desert Island. For twenty seven years, from 1913 to 1940, his construction efforts resulted in roads with sweeping ocean vistas. These roads of broken stone that wind through the eastern half of the island, past lakes and mountains, are now enjoyed by travelers year-round. Surface quality: Skier tracked though part is groomed by volunteers at times."

"This great ride for families goes through rich woodlands, with good views from Eagle Lake."
