the pathways are yours to create. Where adventure is not choreographed and
the wilderness of the land is not just a memory.

T
wo of Maine's most spectacular natural assets are
located within the scenic " The Maine Highlands "
region. The 40-mile long Moosehead Lake, and the
majestic and challenging mile-high Mt. Katahdin at Baxter
State Park attract outdoor enthusiasts from around the
world.
Though it has many aspects of the great wilderness, it is in
fact a working forest supplying fiber for many of the products
you use on a daily basis. The Maine Highlands region
offers some of the finest camping, fishing, boating, hiking
and hunting anywhere.
The spectacular views and impressive panoramas can be
found throughout the region, but nothing is more spectacular
than Baxter State Park. Left in perpetuity in the state
by Gov. Percival Baxter, the 200,000-acre forest preserve
is a massive tract of land traversed by remote hiking trails
and dominated by Mt. Katahdin. The park is also famous
for its Maine wildlife - bears, moose, eagles and deer -
and in fact it marks the beginning of the 2,050-mile Appalachian
Trail.
Another must-see location is in nearby Brownville Junction.
Gulf Hagas, as it is known, is a 3-mile gorge often
called the " Grand Canyon of the East. "
One of the major communities in this part of the region
- Millinocket - has a rich history of papermaking and
lumbering and several museums allow visitors to appreciate
and understand that part of Maine's history.

is located in Millinocket and offers the history of
early snowmobiling in the Katahdin region.
* Our newly designated scenic byway, on Route 11 from
Grindstone (northeast of Millinocket) to Patten.
If Mt. Katahdin dominates one third of this extensive region,
another third of the area is dominated by Moosehead
Lake. More than 40-miles long and up to 20 miles
wide in some areas, the lake's picturesque shoreline includes
everything from bogs to sandy beaches. The largest
lake in New England, Moosehead is dotted with islands
and ringed by high mountains that offer great opportunities
for picnics, scenic vistas and photographs.
Greenville, nestled at the southern tip of Moosehead Lake,
serves as base camp for many guide services, outfitters,
canoe renters and rafting adventurers. It's also the largest
