Top Reasons to Go to Inland Maine
Baxter State Park: Mt. Katahdin, the state’s highest peak, stands as a sentry over Baxter's forestland in its "natural wild state."
Moosehead Lake: Surrounded by mountains, Maine's largest lake—dotted with islands and chiseled with inlets and coves—retains the rugged beauty that so captivated author Henry David Thoreau in the mid-1800s.
Water Sports: It's easy to get out on the water with scheduled cruises on large inland lakes; marinas and outfitters rent boats, canoes, and kayaks throughout the region and run white-water-rafting trips on several rivers.
Winter Pastimes: Downhill skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and dogsledding are all popular winter sports.
Foliage Drives: Maine’s best fall foliage is inland, where hardwoods outnumber spruce, fir, and pine trees in many areas.
