Watch this dramatic rock fall triggered in Acadia


A spooky moment in Acadia National Park today. Rockfall! Fortunately, it was a controlled and triggered rockfall and no one was in danger.

“Work on the Eagle Lake carriage road includes triggering dramatic rockfalls and stabilizing steep rock slopes directly above the historic thoroughfare.” Scheduled for completion in September, the project will rehabilitate six miles of road and foundation surface, improve drainage characteristics and reconstruct dry-laid stone masonry retaining walls. While the entire loop around the lake is currently closed to all uses, some parts will eventually begin to reopen to visitors as they are completed. “

Eagle Lake Carriage Road is one of the best examples of a drivable road in the United States. These roads were used at the turn of the century for carriage trips. Les Amis de l’Acadie has been fundraising since 1991 for improvements like the Eagle Lage Carriage Road project. The 45 mile road is undergoing improvements with the 6 mile long Eagle Lake Highway near Bar Harbor being the busiest section.

Hikers, cyclists and horse riders will not be able to use this route at this time. Stay up to date with all Acadia alerts HERE.

Watch the video. The sound is even scarier than watching the rock fall!

Cities had between 10,000 and 150,000 inhabitants, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read it full methodology here. From these rankings, we have selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will not be surprised to learn that many of the cities featured here are in one of these two states.
