Your off-road biking adventure in Maine can be as thrilling as a sprint down a mountain slope or as relaxing as an afternoon cruising a scenic rail-trail. Acadia National Park, with its 45 miles of historic carriage roads, is perhaps one of Maine’s best-known places for off-road biking. A gift of philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, Jr., the roads were constructed between 1913 and 1940, and were designed to offer views of the Acadia landscape. As you ride, you can view the 17 stone bridges that span streams, waterfalls and cliffs throughout the park.
