American Byways

CROSSING

Each curvy twist and turn along the highways, cross routes and riverside drives throughout Maine will get you from here to there - wherever here and there are! But there are
four very special routes that belong in the pantheon of our nation's most important roads:
America's Byways® by our Federal Highway Administration.
What's in the name?
Across the country, nearly 150 roads have been selected, judged and officially designated
for their contribution to the American experience in one or more of these six areas: archaeological, cultural, historic, natural, recreational and scenic qualities. Roads possessing just one of these designations take on the moniker "National Scenic Byway," whereas those special roadways adding something truly unique - and two or more of the six
named contributions - get elevated in status to "All-American Road."

While relatively small, Maine's family of American Byways represents an excellent cross-section of our great state from
the high-mountain and far-off lake vistas dotted with quintessential and quaint New England towns along the Rangeley
Lakes Scenic Byway to the unspoiled, rugged shoreline beauty presented along the Down East coastal route that makes
up the Schoodic National Scenic Byway. The Old Canada Road National Scenic Byway is a time machine that traces a
historic trail along the Kennebec River, one cut by generations of French Canadians who poured into Maine in pursuit
of a new life.
Our most beloved byway is a singular beauty. The Acadia All-American Road takes travelers through the enjoyable, but
often frenzied, summer enclave of Bar Harbor into the deep contrast of Acadia - our nation's most popular National
Park. We have yet to find anything that compares to dawn from the summit of Cadillac Mountain, the heritage and
mystique of Jordan Pond, the saddled rage of the sea at Thunder Hole, and the miles of carriage roads that wend their
way through this magnificent park, an absolute gift to the world.
