Driving Tours in Acadia National Park The mile Park Loop Road is to Acadia what Half Dome is to Yosemite -- the park's premier attraction, and a magnet for the largest crowds. This remarkable roadway starts near the Hulls Cove Visitor Center and follows the high ridges above Bar Harbor before dropping down along the rocky coast.

      Most roads are open for cross-country skiing or snowmobiles in the wintertime, but it's a good idea to check the website for any weather-related closures before you make your plans. A visit to Carriage Roads represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Acadia National Park online trip planner to plot your vacation.   You have a couple of options for bicycling Acadia carriage roads from Blackwoods Campground. You can bike along the Park Loop Road for 3 miles to the carriage roads, or take the bikes on the Island Explorer not only to the carriage roads, but also even to the Schoodic section of the park, where new bike trails opened last year.. From the campground, there’s a short mile dirt path .
