Acadia National Park holds one of the most unique features of any national park. Within Acadia's boundaries are 45 miles of carriage roads, a generous gift to the American people from John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Rockefeller's determination to preserve extraordinary scenery and the horse and carriage lifestyle, combined with his love of road-building, resulted in a carriage road system flanked by sweeping panoramas and intimate views of Acadia.
