General Information

Description - The Great North Woods Region is true wilderness. You'll spot moose, deer, and other wildlife through the trees while you're hiking and camping--at just about any time--even while you're driving along the route.

Everything about this route shows that this area is the outdoors enthusiast's paradise. For one, Pontook Reservoir is teeming with wildlife to see while you're negotiating its class III rapids. These rapids are the Androscoggin's most challenging, making Pontook a favorite among canoeists, kayakers, and rafters.

These is also the Dixville Notch State Park (the place you'll most likely spot a moose) and many other state parks, where you'll find excellent camping, fishing, hiking, and waterfalls (at Dixville State Park).

The Brown Pulp and Paper Company House Museum focuses on 'Working Forest' exhibits, lectures, demonstrations, heritage walks, occasional mill tours, and a full-scale replica of a circa 1900 logging camp.

The area even includes a city, Berlin, that is known as "the city that trees built."

Directions from : The byway is located in the northern part of the state. It starts just south of the city of Berlin (in Gorham) and heads north until it almost reaches Canada. The route ends in Pittsburg.
