Hey Everyone,

My GF and I are planning our trip to Maine this September. This is our 3rd trip up that way.

Looking for some scenic routes, as we will be there towards the end of Sept. We'll probably have a hotel near Brunswick/Bath and later, near Ba Haba!

Also the GF found an off-road park, Wicked Hills in China, ME. Website doesn't appear to have been updated since 2012. Anyone know of this place?

Give me a shout if you know of any routes and/or places to check out. We plan to be on the move in my TH everyday we're there.

Thanks in advance, for your time.

Cappy's Chowder House, 1 Main St, Camden, it's quaint. nice little town too w interesting shops. LL Bean of course in Freeport. I remember exploring around the Great Heath one time but wound up getting chased out by a swarm of bees
Thanks for the information. We made it up to Ba Haba on the last trip. Great Heath doesn't look like it's too far to check out.

We hit the LL Bean store last trip. Nice to go again. And an ex-coworker moved back to Maine and he works at LL Bean now. :grin:

We stopped there on the last trip, on our way to Land's End. We will most likely go down that way again. Definitely worth the trip!

My GF contacted Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife on the internet, about off-roading in ME.

Here is their response:
"You cannot take a motor vehicle (Jeep) on the ATV trails but there are plenty of dirt roads in northern Maine on paper company lands. We just don't have any maps of these roads. Perhaps you could check with someone locally depending on the area you plan to visit."

I kind of knew about this, as this happened on an episode of North Woods Law where a couple guys were in a Jeep Liberty Sport and they ended up getting stuck on an ATV trail overnight. They received a summons for having the Jeep on the trail. :smile:

I guess we'll see what we can find, when we get up there in about 2 weeks.

If you want an out and back country ride on some designated scenic and historic routes:
Roadtrip up US-1 all the way to Fort Kent where it ends, just for the ride. Then go back a few miles to Madawaska and stay at the Inn of Acadia (Nice, I like it a lot and it has a very good restaurant and lounge). Then make your way to Route 11 and ride that south toward Millinocket and see the new National Monument Wilderness. Next jump on I-95 and head back for the coast. It will be a day-long trip north and then a another south.

You will be close enough to go to Mount Washington in New Hampshire. If it is not snowing, the view is awesome.
