Rangers Opening Acadia National Park’s Carriage Roads
Yes! Some of our favorite roads on the planet will begin to open today!
According to an Acadia National Park press release, Park rangers will begin removing barricades and opening up parking lots beginning today, Friday, April 27th.
“The carriage roads of Acadia are the most extensive example of broken-stone roads in the entire United States,” said Superintendent Kevin Schneider. “We are grateful to everyone for pitching in to take care of these roads including volunteers, Friends of Acadia, and all those who respect the temporary mud season closure.”
So, strap on those hiking boots and check out nature's beauty!
One thing to be aware of is that the Cadillac Mountain Summit Road will be closing for a three day period in the near future, because crews will be paving the parking lots there. You can still hike up the mountain, but be aware of the crews and heavy equipment.
And once again, kudos to the volunteers who carve the signs within Acadia! These folks have just recently won a BIG AWARD!
