The Crown of Maine Aroostook County
Not typically considered part of inland
Maine and not a coastal region,
Aroostook has a story all it's own. Typically
known by its more familiar name
The County is a full 5th of the size of
Maine. Also known as the Crown of
Maine, it possesses a quiet luster that
is vibrantly colored by its culture and
closely-knit people. With most of its
cities perched on the state's eastern
80 |
border with Canada there is an interesting
international feel to the place.
Farmland, forest, beautiful crystal
clear lakes; The County is worth the
drive. Spot Katahdin from Rt. 11 or
from the final bits of I-95 before it
ends in Houlton. US-1 allows for spectacular
views (known as the Million
Dollar View Scenic Byway. Daytime
trips offer beauty in virtually every
direction, and nights often bring the
mysterious Northern Lights. Sporting
types who travel here in the winter
know that cruising takes on an alternate
meaning with more than 1,000
miles of snowmobiling trails - doing
double duty as ATV trails in warmer
weather. Along the western edge, Rt.
11 skirts an endless sea of deep green
that makes up the more than three
million acres of working forestland
of The North Maine Woods. And if

Maine's Inland Places
Bangor, Greenville and the Highlands
The city of Bangor was built upon
the rich natural resources produced
by Maine's north woods and today
it continues to serve as the cultural
centerpiece of northern Maine. Any
and all travelers seeking to head
into northern Maine will likely come
through this modern city that makes
itself a welcome host to events and
performances all year long. For travelers
headed on to other parts, I-95,
Rt. 15, Rt. 9, Rt. 1-A, and Rt. 2 all
prove access to the woods, the coast
and even the mountains.
Those looking for memorable and
scenic drives should make their way
up Rt. 11 onto the Grindstone Scenic
Byway - now known as the Katahdin
Woods and Waters Byway - which
encircles the eastern side of Baxter
State Park, home to Maine's highest
peak, Mt. Katahdin (just shy of a mile
high), and the northern terminus of
the Appalachian Trail. It also sits on
the edge of the Allagash and parts of
the Maine Woods introduced to us by
Henry David Thoreau 150 years ago.
Beautiful, quiet, green places along
the West Branch of the Penobscot
River and thundering pulse-pounding
places that still draw us in for the thrill
of whitewater along the East Branch
of the Penobscot. Rt. 11 travels
southwest out of Millinocket taking
you towards another of the highlands
most glorious features: the picturesque
resort town of Greenville on
Moosehead Lake. As Maine's largest
lake there are no end to the things
you can enjoy in the outdoors here
- hiking, paddling, the age old traditions
of hunting and fishing, moose
safari and the spectacular sights to be
seen from a top Mt. Kineo perched in
the center of the lake just waiting for
you to explore. This is the epitome of
camping bliss, beautiful stretches of
uninterrupted green punctuated with
deep hues of blue from the lakes and
ponds and just about nothing else to
get in the way.
