Interior Secretary David Bernhardt has directed the National Park Service to allow motorized e-bikes access to trails that traditional bikes can use. And now, Acadia National Park is considering allowing e-bikes on its historic carriage roads -- an area historically reserved for non-motorized use. This move would change the backcountry experience for many users.

So far, no analysis of this new policy has been conducted. And without proper evaluation of potential impacts, park resources and your experience as a visitor are under threat.

Tell Acadia Superintendent Kevin Schneider to protect solitude and prohibit e-bikes on the park's carriage roads.

IMPORTANT: Personalizing your letter below will go further in ensuring peace and quiet are protected along Acadia's carriage roads. To make your message more effective, please share why prohibiting e-bikes on the carriage roads matters to you. Thank you!


Please prohibit e-bikes on Acadia's historic carriage roads
