Cobblestone Bridge

Cobblestone Bridge was built as the first bridge in the Carriage Road System in Acadia National Park.   originally, Rockefeller planned to build all the bridges using this stone, but quickly realized the  stones would not work well for many locations and switched to granite for the remaining sixteen bridges.   Situated along the lovely Jordan Stream, it is an engineering marvel.    One can reach this bridge either by hiking about a mile from Jordan Pond House using the carriage roads or via the Jordan Stream Trail.

  1. beautiful, thank you for adding beauty to my morning.

  2. I appreciate the beauty and history–we don’t have quite that sort of history out here on the left coast. I just noticed that you’ve been posting for nearly a year. What an amazing journal of your journey.
