6. Carriage Roads
The Carriage Roads are a 57-mile long network of paved paths created and funded by John D. Rockefeller Jr. from 1913 to 1940. Over the course of the twenty-seven year project, Rockefeller hand-designed the paths to highlight the best scenery the park had to offer, winding around Jordan Pond, Eagle Lake and Mount Desert Island.
9. Precipice Trail
The Precipice Trail is one of the most rewarding hikes in the park, if you're ready to attempt it. The challenging, two-mile round-trip path has visitors scrambling up the side of Champlain Mountain by iron rungs and ladders fixed to exposed cliffs, all for a scenic summit and unparalleled view of Sand Beach.
