A  couple of  local covered bridges

robyvillebridge.jpg
Robyville bridge in Corinth

This bridge, the only completely shingled covered bridge in the State, was built in 1876. The supporting members are the Long truss design and span 73 feet between the stone abutments. The bridge crosses Kenduskeag Stream in Robyville Village in the town of Corinth about three miles northwest of Kenduskeag Village. The bridge was reinforced in 1984 to carry local traffic.  ... This  bridge is about 20 miles from the cabin towards Bangor

Lowes Bridge

This bridge, built in 1857, was washed away by the flood of April 1, 1987. A modern covered bridge, patterned after the original, was built on the original abutments in 1990. The bridge has a clear span of 120 feet over the Piscataquis River. It is located just off State Route 15 south of Guilford village.   ...   this bridge is about  8 miles from the cabin towards  Dover-Foxcroft  ....  I watched this  bridge being built (in a parking lot 1 1/2 miles from its present location)

Hiking In the Moosehead Lake Region
  

The Lake:
More than 40 miles long and up to 10 miles wide, Moosehead Lake is the largest freshwater lake situated inside a single state in the northeast. From Greenville or Rockwood, you'll view Mt. Kineo (1,806 ft) at it rises from the Lake. Comprised of flint, Indian tribes traveled great distances to make tools and weapons.

         ( the State has renamed this mountain to big Moose mountain )
At 3,196 feet, Big Squaw Mountain, with a long ridge line, dominates the view to the west from the Moosehead area. The view from the top of the mountain is famous for beholding the Moosehead region and its many lakes and mountains. this mountain was home to the first fire tower in the United States, built by M.G. Show in 1905.
      From the Ski lift they run the chair lift in late summer and fall for senic views from the top  Contact # 207 695-1000
Directions from Greenville: Travel approximately 5.3 miles north on Route 15. Take a left on the dirt road directly across from the Forest Fire Danger level sign. (Just past the Maine Forest Service Squaw Brook Campground.) Travel a little less than a mile on this road. Look carefully for a sign on the right, which marks the trailhead.
    Time: Round trip is approximately 7.5 miles, Allow up to 5 hours. when on top, proceed a short distance ahead to a ledge with a view of Mirror Pond. There is a 2,000 foot elevation change from the base to the top.]
=========================================================
 
This is a very beautiful hike. You will pass three very picturesque mountain ponds in a distance of only four miles.

Directions: You have two choices for hiking this lovely area.

  1. Follow the same directions for the Big Squaw Mountain hike. Follow the road beyond the Big Squaw trail head to the Y to the gravel pit. You will see the post headings of the trail approximately 1/2 mile from the gravel pit. Follow the trail to the edge of Little Squaw pond. Papoose Pond will be on your left. After Papoose Pond, you may follow the trail to the left which ends behind the Greenwood Motel (will need a shuttle back) or you may follow the trail to the right which will take you around Little Squaw Pond. If you continue to bear right, you will come back down between the two Squaw Ponds. At the top of the right hand turn, if you turn around, you will note a spectacular view of the south and the east. (This portion of the trail is the most difficult and should be approached only from the south to the north, unless you are a seasoned hikers. From north to south it is a very steep, uphill climb.).

    If you choose to follow the trail straight ahead, you will have a relatively easy hike to Little Notch Pond (approx. 25 minutes)This trail ends just beyond the pond, therefore you will have to turn around and return to the downhill trail on the left, between the Squaw Ponds to return to your starting point.

Time: This entire trip will take you between 3- and 4 hours depending upon your hiking speed and ability. Begin your hike behind the Greenwood Motel (it is OK to park in their lot) just north of Greenville on Rt. 15. This hike ends on the Scott Paper logging road approximately 1 mile from the trailhead of Big Squaw Mountain. The trail from the Motel to Big Squaw Pond is approx. 4 miles. It ascends over Little Squaw Pond to Big Squaw Pond. A car shuttle or pickup can be arranged with the proprietors of the Greenwood upon request .

==============================================

Borestone Mountain     At 1, 947 feet, this is a small, but rugged mountain with a bare summit and two peaks.. This is a great family hike. Borestone's last timber harvest was in 1899  making it attractive habitat for certain wildlife. Some of Maine's most coveted warblers spend their summer here—Blackburnian, Cape May and bay-breasted nest in the coniferous canopy. Goshawks wing through the mature deciduous woods to prey on grouse. Pine martins are regularly seen by sanctuary staff.   Tree cavities provide nesting sites for raccoons, owls, woodpeckers and other species—sometimes in succession—while eagles, falcons and turkey vultures also can be seen soaring overhead.  Total hiking  distance is only four miles.          

Borestone Mt. in central Maine , Elliotsville TWP,about 18 miles from Abbot.
It is an impressive mountain (El. gain of 1100 ft) that rises abruptly beside Lake Onawa . The trail ascends steadily to 3 ponds near the summit (Sunrise, Mid-day, Sunset Ponds) and then through the woods to bare ledges and a panoramic  360 degree view.  
A trailside nature center located on the shore of Sunrise Pond includes interactive displays and information about the area’s natural and human history.  Hiking time is est. at 3 1/2 hours round trip.

Directions: Reach the trail by driving south from Greenville on Rt.15 to within 1/2  mile north of Monson village. Take a left on the Elliotsville Road (look for the Appalachian Trail sign). Proceed ahead 8 miles to Big Wilson Falls. (A beautiful waterfall can be seen by going left before the bridge. Its just a few feet from where you can park.. there are  some fire-rings there for  cooking .. there may be picnic tables.) Cross bridge and take next left. Cross the railroad tracks. Trail is approximately .1 miles on the right up a private road. Park on the main road, on the left. A small fee may be charged by the Audubon Society property caretaker. The society owns the land around Borestone. They have developed interesting nature stations along the trail.

====================================================

onawatresle.jpg
Onawa Trestle height 130 feet

   Onawa Trestle lies  just a  few  miles   from Borestone Mountain area.    The Onawa  trainTrestle is the longest, highest railroad viaduct in Maine. The current carrier, Montreal-Maine-Atlantic Railroad, operates trains on a highly unpredictable schedule over this trestle posted for "no trespassing".    The 1200-foot long Onawa Trestle crosses 130 feet above the Ship Pond Stream gorge,  from  Borestone  Mt. head back out  towards  Wilson Stream and then  take the road towards  Onawa village ( a  few  camps on the lakes frontage) once  you find  the  railroad tracks, continue on by vechicle till you see  the same  tracks at a  second road crossing , park nearby, follow the tracks south ( on foot) about  1/2  mile. .   Great views of the tresle, Borestone Mountain and Onawa Lake

    

Big Spencer Mountain    The view from the top of this prominent Moosehead landmark is truly outstanding. This is a challenging hike to a manned Forest Service firetower.

Directions: To get to the trailhead, drive to Kokadjo 20 miles north of Greenville, on the Lily Bay Road. From Kokadjo, drive 5 miles (be sure to take the left fork .2 miles north of Kokadjo) to the Georgia Pacific Paper Company gate, where a small fee will be charged. Proceed ahead approximately 3 miles to the Maine Forest Service Bear Brook Campsite on the right. Take the next left on a well used dirt road. Proceed ahead for approximately 6.5 miles to the trailhead on the left. Look for a sign. Park on the right, just beyond the trailhead.

Time: Allow up to 4 hours hiking time for the round tip. This is an 3,230' peak with a 1,900' elevation change, the upper portion of the trail has some ladders placed over steep sections.

=============================================

B-52 Hike: Elephant Mountain

B-52 Hike - Easy Walk; Elephant Mountain:
Site of B-52 bomber wreckage which crashed on Elephant Mountain in 1963.

This is a somber memorial to the crash of a B-52 bomber doing training maneuvers in 1963. All but two crewmembers perished, and those two spent a cold night in a blizzard on this remote mountain before being discovered. The people of Greenville have preserved the site and the wreckage in honor of the men aboard this flight. Each year in January, a group snowmobile ride is held to this site, and a memorial service takes place.

Time:  about  one  mimute from where you can now park a  vechicle  to the  beginning of  wreckage strewn up the hillside  Allow 20 - 45  minutes looking  time.  there are  foot paths  , not  accessable  by wheelchair
               Difficulty: Easy 

Directions: From the traffic light in downtown Greenville drive north on the Lily Bay Road. At 7.1 miles look for a dirt road on the right (now marked as the Prong Pond Road). There will be  a  yellow  street sign  showing a  plane,( these  signs  are at most  gravel intersections ) Take the right onto the dirt road and stay straight. at  about  4.7  miles there is view of Elephant Mountain before you and Baker Mountain in the north. Continue 1.2 miles further (5.9 total), crossing North Brook (campsite) then go uphill where you will see signs marking the way and a sign at the trailhead which reads B-52 Memorial Site trail-     . Park here.

===================================================

Number Four Mountain     This mountain provides a 2,890 foot summit with a firetower. Although not a heavily traveled trail, the view offers a feeling of "being in the mountains".

Directions: To get to this trail, travel approx. 17 miles north of Greenville on the Lily Bay Road. One mile south of Kokadjo, take the Frenchtown Road which parallels First Roach Pond. This road is an obviously wide and well-traveled dirt road. Travel approximately 1.5 miles on this road. Take a right and travel 1 mile. This road provides excellent views of Number Four Mountain and Lily Bay Mountain to your left. Take the first left off this road and go .5 miles; trail is on the left after the first bridge marked by a sign. Parking is across from the trail head on the right. Hake ahead on an overgrown road approximately mile to the site of an old wardens cabin. The trail then ascends very steeply on a blue blazed trail.

Time: The round trip is approximately 2.5 miles. Allow 2-3 hours. Magnificent views from the top are rewarding.

================================================

Gulf Hagas (Check this one out!!!)

Gulf Hagas:
Appropriately nicknamed "the Grand Canyon of Maine", this magnificent gorge is nearly 4 miles long, at times displaying vertical slate walls 300' to 400' deep. The west branch of the Pleasant River drops some 400' within this four miles creating numerous waterfalls, chutes, and pools. The falls are particularly spectacular during the spring runoff. This is also a must trip in the fall during the peak of the foliage season. The summer offers tempting swimming holes under waterfalls. This is truly one of the most spectacular gorges in all New England and a highly recommended hiking trip. The gorge and adjacent land has recently been purchased by the national Park Service. "The Hermitage" (a majestic stand of towering white king pine) was declared a registered National landmark in 1968. This land is now owned by the Nature Conservancy.

Directions: Access from Greenville. Take a right at Sanders Store in Greenville (Pleasant Street) and continue straight ahead for approximately 2 miles. At this point, the road takes a sharp right angle turn. Continue ahead on a dirt road approximately 10 miles, where you will come to the hedgehog Checkpoint gate). Stop at the gate, pay a small fee (North Maine Woods Association). The attendant will give you a map and directions to the head of the Gulf.

Time: Allow 6-8 hours for the hike which includes a long trail of approximately 8.5 miles. To continue to "The Hermitage" would entail a round trip of 11.5 miles and would require about 8 hours. If you do not wish to hike the entire trail, the head of the gulf can be reached by hiking only 1 mile from the trailhead. The Appalachian Trail passes through the Gulf. You will want to return to this spot time after time!!!!

Little Spencer Mountain      This hike is considered difficult for the average hiker. Caution should be exercised. There is a flagging tape trail through the woods. The beginning of the trail is somewhat wet and then becomes very steep and strenuous, although not a technical climb. Footing can be somewhat difficult on steep portions due to loose shale rock.

Directions: Follow directions as for Big Spencer Mountain to Kokadjo. At the first fork in the road, take the left fork to Spencer Pond Camps. 2.1 miles from the corner, take the road on the right. This road will take you along the east shore of Spencer Pond. Approximately 1/2 mile on the right, you will spot the flagging tape which marks the trailhead. There is a book at the summit of the mountain to sign.

Time: 4 hours for round trip 

========================================

Mt. Kineo  if you get a chance to , rent a boat in Rockwood and be sure to go to the backside of Kineo by water  (you won't forget this sight)  a boat will cost between $35 and $140 (shop around)   but if you are just here for the hike there are water Taxi's to take you over.

Mt. Kineo:
Located on a peninsula in the center of Moosehead lake, Mt. Kineo rises dramatically 800 feet straight up out of the water on its southeastern face. This famous landmark can seen by driving 20 miles north of Greenville on Rt. to Rockwood.
To get to Kineo from Rockwood, you must go by boat. Two trails, the Indian Trail and the Bridle Trail, lead to the top. At the top, one can continue from the fire tower to North Trail and Hardscrabble Point approximately 1- miles and continue east on the Carriage Road Trail 1- miles to make a loop hike back to the Bridle Trail. Once on the peninsula, do not head straight to the base of Kineo as the trail disappears and is closed Proceed by heading northwest along the shore path from the docking area. Passing under the spectacular cliffs of Kineo flint, it is approximately .8 miles to the Indian trail which starts on the right flagged by blue blaze. This trail stays near the edge of the cliff all the way to the top which is reached in 1 mile. NOTE: This trail passes over steep cliffs for extended lengths and adults should be in control of children at all times. Dramatic drop off all the way. Watch closely for blaze marks to keep on trail. A short distance before reaching the firetower on top, you can continue east to a trail which leads to the sheer faced cliffs... but be careful.

To reach the Bridle Trail, continue .3 miles northeast beyond the Indian trail on the shore path. The trail is on the right by an old warden's camp. Although there are no views until the top is reached, this is a longer, easier trail. The fire tower on top affords spectacular views and is well worth the climb.

Time: Allow 3 hours round trip from the docking area.

 

=========================================================

 Waterfalls  in the area

These places below  in red are nice senic places near here 

Bottle Brook   Another little set of waterfalls nestled in the hemlocks with a interesting rock formatiopn, , it is just about another two miles toward Bingham from the road that goes into Kingsbury Falls.   ( Or  9.6  miles from Abbot)  Our brooks are not named roadside so watch for the brook on the right side of the road (it crosses the road ) It is the only one with a 20 foot gravel bed on the right side of the road ,  they all look the same on the left !   It  also has a   #200 (woods road number)  nailed to a  tree on the right side, now that you found it walk downstream less than 5 minutes , I think for a small brook this might be the prettiest in the State,

-------------------------------------------------

WILSON FALLS   and GORGE   Elliotsville Road, Monson, Maine      

Little Wilson Falls is one of the highest falls in Maine, with the main drop being 13 yards. Long canyon below with many scenic views. Trails are accessible by the Appalachian Trial. Wilson Falls has a wonderful Campground Area. There are wood benches to have lunch on. . There are several walking trails from the lower Falls and camping area will take you to the Wilson Gorge. It is about a 1-hour hike to the Gorge, but well worth the time. This trail is part of the Appalachian Trail, so you may encounter some very personable hikers on your way.  

Direction on getting there:
Follow Rt. 15 south towards Monson, from  the  Greenville  area.   Just before entering Monson village, go left on the Elliottsville Road.

Also while in that area , look up  Houston Brook Falls , I recently went there to check it out ,   Its is on the other side of the dam / river.    The upper falls consists of 5 short drops , the lower falls - the biggest is bubblely water cascading over an 80 degree drop of about 35 feet . This is a short walk about 5 minutes  from the car .  We passed this twice while looking for it , you will find a small sign and a parking place next to the town Transfer  Recycling Station   To get to the other side, go back into Bingham cross the bridge on  route 16  , take a right follow the river upstream , its about a mile from the boat landing .

A SCENIC TOUR  (North )   

    Follow Route 6/15 north to Greenville, nestled on the shores of 40-mile-long Moosehead Lake.  

You could make your first stop in Monson on the way. This town was once a major producer of  Slate Blackboards, once used exclusively in schools, and slate was always used extensively in the electrical field, whereas it doesn't conduct electricity. All older elevators used this material, until the rise of plastics. Even in Monson there are 3 slate quarries, (open pits) several hundred feet deep. In other areas  just outside town (southeast ) slate was mined from shafts 700 feet down and then tunneled off to the sides.   This was usually done in steps on the way down , with each'' ledge , there was room for storage  of the blasted slate  that eventually was taken to the top   and processed."     John Kennedy's grave marker came from one  of these areas.   If you want to see one of these quarries , take the second right in town  (Water Street ) , then take the first left , go to Moosehead Manufacturing , you will see two quarries . ( Use CAUTION WHILE THERE )

 On the way to Greenville there are several well known areas to see moose beside the road.

The area's tourism history dates to the 1890s, when you could take a train from New York City directly to Greenville to enjoy the lake and the grand hotel at the base of Mount Kineo. Trains to the region are a thing of the past, but this has not decreased the area's popularity - in summer, Moosehead Lake provides swimming, boating and fishing grounds to a host of families and sportsmen and women.

As you might guess from its name, the Moosehead area boasts a large population of moose; local guides offer Moose Safaris via float plane, canoe or kayak. These are nice trips , but I cant imagine the local paying to see a moose,if they are not in the middle of the road,we don't stop to look at em'

During your stay in this neighborhood, visit the S/S Katahdin, ( resverations for a cruise    1 207 695 2716 )  a gracefully restored 1914 steamship that now serves as a floating museum. The "Kate"  is  one of the  oldest steamships in America  and . also offers scenic tours of Moosehead Lake and passage to spectacular Mount Kineo, where you can hike, play a round of golf on a scenic 9-hole course, or just explore the grounds of the once-grand Mount Kineo House.    1 207 695 2716

Is it lunchtime yet ?, STOP INTO  the BLACK FROG  restaurant  right in town

From Greenville, continue north on Route 6/15 to Rockwood ,  jusy before you get in town, stop  at the FLYING MOOSE  (its roadside on someones lawn ) and have your picture taken .   About another mile you will come to Rockwood, Great senic views of Kineo  and Moosehead lake, I think there are boat rentals in Rockwood as well as Beaver cove on the other side of the lake ,.

Mount Kineo has several trails to the top of it , if you like hiking. from the water level on the North side you can drive a boat right up to towering 700 sheer rock wall that drops into Moosehead Lake by another 300 feet .  This mountain was known to the Indians for it's quality of flint, One of the largest masses in the east.  Flint rock was a valuable asset for fires and specifically arrowheads.

 Continue on rt 6 / 15 to Jackman, where you can canoe the popular (and very beautiful) 42-mile Moose River Bow Trip, which begins and ends at the same point.    

Once you are in Jackman , its only another 25 miles to Canada or 100  I think to Quebec  City

 From Jackman, take Route 201 - a designated State Scenic Highway - south to The Forks, where the Kennebec River offers some of the most exciting whitewater rafting in the East. Several local rafting companies provide gear, expertly trained guides, lodging and meals. (Ask about special packages for families with children.) The Forks is also home to 96-foot Moxie Falls, accessible via a worthwhile half-mile walk.

From The Forks , its another 25 miles to Bingham  , look up Houston Brook Falls there and Wyman Dam

Route 16  takes you back to abbot   This is a 150 mile  round trip , probibily of seeing more than 6 moose!

=====================================================
 Senic  (South bound )    OK !!!!!   who really wants to go south to see the  tourists ,  but  here is a  few  places

Bangor - Brewer   for a daytrip south of here I recommend , in Bangor go see  Stephen King's House on W Broadway, Bangor. Perhaps stop at Hollywood slots on Main Street. A statue of Paul Bunyan is  just across the street.  Over in Brewer   there is a fantastic Chinese  buffet restaurant ( about  $5. ) Twin Chinese Buffet  274 State St , Brewer. 

Fort Knox & the Penobscot Narrows Observatory : Prospect, Maine (..about 17  miles from Brewer) .  An OLD fort  and a ultra modern bridge with an elevator to its viewing tower ( 420 feet )

Located on the west bank of the Penobscot River in Prospect, Maine From Bangor: On Rte. 1A South....follow Rte 1A South through the towns of Hampden, Winterport, Frankfort and Prospect.
