Loneley Planet Travel Guide Names The North Maine Woods as a Top 10 Destination for 2013

USA travel guide
Every year the US-based editors of Lonely Planet Travel Guides team up with Lonely Planet’s expert authors to compile a list of US destinations that are prime destinations for the next year. Northern Maine made it into the top 10! See its report below:

7. Northern Maine
Moose, white water rafting, epic hiking. No, not the Rockies – we’re talking about Maine. Maine isn’t only lobster rolls, lighthouses and rocky shoreline. The woodsy interior, on the top half of the Maine ‘thumb’ reaching north to the Canada border, makes for a wilderness adventure. The Appalachian Trail begins/ends atop Mt Katahdin (which literally means ‘Mt Great Mountain’) in primitive Baxter State Park, with 200,000 acres of lakes and mountains to reach by hiking boot. Nearby is Moosehead Lake, home to a 99-year-old steamboat to ride, and the source of the Kennebec River, with great rafting opportunities at the Forks. To the north in remote Aroostook County, miles of old rail beds have been transformed into bike trails, and multi-day canoe trips can paddle you right up to the Canadian border.

Loaded for Bear!

Loaded for Bear!

The 2012 summer was dry. The bears preferred sites
with plenty of food. OMM Outfitters uses at least a tractor-trailer load of bear bait
during an average season.

OMM Outfitters processes several trailer loads of bear bait
each season and supplies nearby guides.

Veteran guide Glen Durgin is pictured
with the OMM utility boat loaded for baiting
water-side sites around the Eagle Lake Reserve Land.
