We went on a two hour tour. We loved every second of it! Our carriage driver was so knowledgeable and friendly. The scenery is so beautiful. We learned a lot about the area and how Mr. Rockefeller had a direct and positive influence regarding so many different aspects of the Acadia area including some of the roads and bridges and...

Travel on the carriage roads on a horse-drawn wagon. Each wagon carries 10-12 people with narrator/tour guide. Various tours are offered, ranging from 1 - 2 hours. We have done 2 different tours over the past 3 years - both were excellent. good for school-aged kids; preschoolers - may be okay with the 1 hour ride. You an bring your... More

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary with a trip to Acadia National Park in early June, 2015. We chose the Day Mountain trip which was expertly guided by two lovely young ladies, Taylor and Cat, and of course two stunning horses - Percheron I think - Yogi and Boo Boo. Taylor and Cat were very informative and interactive... More

The staff are very knowledgeable, friendly and the horses and carriages are beautiful!!! You have to try both of the 2 hour tours. They are very pet friendly, We got to take our Boston terrier for his first carriage ride. This is a must do on any ones list of places to go when visiting Acadia National Park.

Had a great tour of the carriage trails and bridges, they can't show all the bridges some are not in areas of the horse trails, and I liked that the horses are cared for and have many breaks. Our carriage ride was very enjoyable..

They were booked. We asked about Sunday morning. They were booked. Sunday afternoon? Booked. CALL ahead for reservations!!! We took the 2 hour Mr. Rockefeller’s Bridges... More

Took the Day Mountain Summit tour at 4PM and it was really nice. It was a bit cool the day we went and they had fleece blankets for everyone. The narration by Coleen was great - you can tell she was very knowledgeable and loved what she did. Alyssa was with her training. I didn't have intentions of hiking much... More

Wilwood Stables provides visitors with carrage rides in a variety of routes along the carrage roads of the park. The drivers/ tour guides on our outing were extremely knowlegable about pArk history and environment. The carrage rides offer an opportunity for visitors who do not hike or bike an opportunity to experience the beauty of the park. The

We took the two hour carriage ride which was called Rockefeller's Bridges. Two beautiful horses pulled our carriage through the woods and past three of the stone bridges which we would not have been able to see without taking this trip. Our driver let us get out to explore a little around one of the bridges. The driver was very... More
