Eagle Lake Professional Review and Guide

"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."
