THE HEART OF ACADIA
Acadia National Park
Central Maine Coast
Thursday, October 7, 2004
Wrapped around and running through the heart of Maine's Acadia National Park you'll find 45 miles of wide and well-maintained horse carriage roads. Designed, financed, and constructed by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. between 1913 and 1940, only non-motorized vehicles are allowed to traverse these wonderful forested byways.
Today I have plans to ride a portion of Acadia's Carriage Road System. To aid me in this outdoor endeavor I'll be bringing along both my mountain bike and a wild spirit of adventure as I explore the offerings of this earthen-surfaced national treasure. Mother Nature is serving up a plate of severe clear for me, and with figurative fork held firmly in hand, I now find myself ready to gorge myself on the day's bright sunshine during my two-wheeled jaunt over roads less traveled.
I'm all saddled up and ready to go! Come along with me as I ride hither and yon on Acadia's Carriage Road System.
