A new accessible carriage was added to the fleet of carriages used by park concessionaire, Carriages of Acadia, for tours in the park.
After 35 years with the National Park Service—most of it as
Trails Foreman—Gary Stellpflug knows just about every inch

In Acadia, no other human-made structures are as iconic as the historic bridges on the the carriage roads.
