Acadia National Park has many carriage roads for bike riding and hiking. We decided to break out the bikes and go for a ride. We had a beautiful day of sunshine and blue sky. The carriage roads are crushed stone and very wide. Very easy to ride on. (Be sure to see the video below.)
We took the bike loop around Eagle Lake. I’m glad we decided to start on the path to the right and not the left. I say this because the path to the right was an up hill climb in the beginning. Then it was much easier and flatter, then mostly down hill after that. If we would have taken the path to the left, it would have been mostly up hill the entire way. With just a small portion of downhill towards the end. The people we had passed going the opposite way looked extremely tired from all the uphill climbing. Even with our electric bikes it would have been difficult.
About half way around Eagle lake we came across a short path to Bubble Pond. We decided to check it out. Everything out here is just so picturesque. To say it’s beautiful here is such an understatement. So peaceful. So much fresh air. Such lovely and tall trees.
