Carriage drives are now offered daily at Wildwood Stables, located inside Acadia National Park one mile north of the park entrance at Seal Harbor. The horse-drawn “Acadia Sociable” carriages hold 12 to 16 people and give you a unique perspective of Acadia’s forests, mountains and coastline. There are four different tours, available for one- or two-hour drives throughout the day. Although they all book quickly, the most popular are the morning drive on Pemetic Mountain to “Cobblestone Bridge” and the sunset trip to Day Mountain. Eight different drivers provide informative narratives about the history of the carriage roads…and often a lot more. (Image above courtesy of Karen Pettengill.)
