“One of Acadia's famed Carriage Roads. The best example of brokenstone roads in the U.S. today.”— Tom Robson
Acadia's carriage roads are the best example of broken stone a type of road commonly used at the turn of the 20th in America today. They are true roads, approximately 16 feet wide, constructed with methods that required much hand labor.
Road crews quarried the island for granite road material and bridge facing. The use of native materials helped blend the roads into the natural landscape and ensure their longevity. However, maintaining these roads today is no easy task, and has been made possible through the National Park Service as well as the non-profit, Friends of Acadia.
