Acadia's Carriage-Road Bridges View Next Bridge...

Eagle Lake BridgeOne of the most popular places for people to start their bike rides along Acadia's carriage roads is the parking lot at the north shore of Eagle Lake. Built in 1928, Eagle Lake Bridge takes drivers on Route 233 over the carriage road and down to the parking area by Eagle Lake. (Eagle Lake Bridge is one of only two classic Rockefeller carriage road bridges built for automobile traffic; Jordan Pond Road Bridge is the other. Eagle Lake Bridge was also widened in 1974 to accommodate larger vehicles on the highway.) Heading south from the parking area, Eagle Lake Bridge's large tunnel-like arch welcomes hikers and bikers alike to the beautiful carriage-road system surrounding Eagle Lake.

To navigate the trails and carriage roads of Acadia and find the classic stone bridges, get a copy of the wonderful Map Adventures Acadia National Park Trail Map or Diane Abrell's Carriage Roads of Acadia: A Pocket Guide. And for more in depth information on the construction and history of the bridges, please see Robert Thayer's Acadia's Carriage Roads book.
