Acadia’s 45-mile carriage road system is the legacy of John D. Rockefeller, Jr., who built the broken-stone roadways to allow for car-free transportation around handsome and hilly Mount Desert Island. Today, the network is ideal for biking and cross-country skiing, and its 17 arched and rustic stone bridges are among the park’s most photographed attractions.
