The Carriage Roads in Acadia National Park will reopen on Friday, April 27th. Park rangers will begin removing the barricades from the parking lots on Friday.

According to the press release

“The carriage roads of Acadia are the most extensive example of broken-stone roads in the entire United States,” said Superintendent Kevin Schneider. “We are grateful to everyone for pitching in to take care of these roads including volunteers, Friends of Acadia, and all those who respect the temporary mud season closure.”

The carriage roads were initially closed on March 2nd but then with all the snow in March, the trails were reopened so the public could enjoy the extended winter season. The second closure lasted from April 12 through April 26th.
