Our crew was not really up for traditional horseback riding, but a carriage ride along Rockefeller's carriage roads was the perfect substitute. Our guides were young but knowledgeable and fun. We learned the basics about the bridges and the history while enjoying candid conversations about the horses and great places to eat.

Took family on the Day Mountain evening carriage ride. Awesome way to view the carriage trails. Morgan, the driver, was full of great information about building the trails, history of the park, and famous people and their cottages. Not too long so small kids enjoyed without getting bored.

This was a much needed relaxing ride after a long afternoon of hiking. We took the Day Moutain Summit ride, and our guide Colleen was excellent. She was born on the island and knew so much about the history of the island, the park, and the town. She seemed very comfortable with our horses, Homer and Bea, who were brother... More

I was so looking forward to a carriage ride in Acadia National Park and this one did not disappoint. The guides, Shelby and Colleen, knew so much about the park. The two hour trip to Day Mountain was lovely and relaxing. We wished we had another day to take another trip to see Rockefeller's bridges.

My wife and I were so thrilled to be able to enjoy this late afternoon carriage ride. We took the Day Mountain Summit tour. Our female driver and guide was wonderful. She knows the two draft horses (named Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings) very well and delighted all of us on the tour with details about how the horses are... More

This was a really beautiful ride with a couple of views of the water. Very peaceful. Our guide was so friendly. He admittedly did not know a lot about the park, but he knew enough to give us the basics. Would definitely do it again.

Most people are commenting about the carriage rides. You can also bring your horse with you on vacation. I can't think of another place on the east coast that offers such a comprehensive network of carriage roads where you and your horse can spend some quality time riding. You can also bring your own carriage and horse team to ride... More

We took the two hour carriage ride to Day Mountain and it was wonderful. Our drivers Ashley and Amanda, were very informative and fun. They really know the history and the little tales that go along with the ride. Overall, it was a wonderful experience

I will say right up front that I thought this would be a hokey touristy thing to do but I had my 86 year old mother with me and hiking was not an option so we opted for a carriage ride. It was delightful. Our driver was funny and knowledgeable. The ride was relaxing and we enjoyed the 6 others... More

We did the bridges tour. It was a nice break for us after hiking all day. Our guide gave us the history of the roads which was interesting and we got to see the Rockefeller bridge which was beautiful. It was a little disappointing the others were under repair but they tried to make the best of it.
