The carriage-road bridge over Duck Brook #2

I saw a painting of this carriage way bridge across Duck Brook on the wall at the hotel we were staying at in Bar Harbor last weekend. I was thrilled when I found out it was not too far since we did not have time to travel through the whole park. Fortunately the man at the hotel gave us a detailed map, since there was no road sign to indicate Duck Brook Road. We drove down what we assumed was the coorect road, and then saw that the road was closed. But there were some bikers there who pointed the way to the bridge...just out of sight. Unfortunatley the trees blocked most of the view I hoped to get, but I scrambled down the banks on each side of the brook and got a few shots anyway.

 

Many of the bridges are single arch or double and I think there are only 2 which are triple arch.
