OUTDOORS STUFF _ hiking, rafting, hunting and fishing .


Cross country skiing can be done about anywhere in this area,  there are many trails throughout the woods .If your looking for downhill skiing with a lift  I recommend a place 25 miles north of here just outside Greenville, They do now  have a web page , click on the picture for info. ( Big Squaw Mountain Resort )  oh ! The state has renamed this mountain to Moose Mountain but the owners have  retained their resort name .


THERE IS A SPECIAL PAGE FOR THE SNOWMOBILE PEOPLE   Click on this photo to go to that page  Please 

Four Wheeling , 4  wheeling or ATV riding... it dont matter how you say it , its great entertainment.  Although Maine is noted for many outdoor recreational activities, among the most popular are boating, snowmobiling and riding of ATVs.  With 2,500 lakes and ponds, and thousands of miles of maintained snowmobile and ATV trails, it's easy to see why these sports have become so popular! 
      I live on a farm in central Maine (100 acres) , my camp renters are welcome to ride on my land , field and woods trails . Starting as close as 3/4 mile away  there are hundreds and hundreds of miles of woods roads to roam.  Check out my location on the  "Maps and Directions page"
 At certain times during the year, parts of it may be closed to 4 wheelers due to the logging industry ( it's their roads) and a concern for your safety but there is always a lot of room ! Our ATV industry depends on indivual land owners allowing riders and not doing property damage , in some places  riding  trails may be closed untill our mud season is over , (usually about  May 15 th) 
   My own 4 wheeler, I keep a canoe rack right on it , and load my gear and canoe, drive it onto my pick-up   and am off to some of our remote ponds for a day of wandering and fishing ! 
     I do encourage responsable and safe riding  practices.   You can have a  great time in this and surrounding areas with out getting  hurt., just a  short distance from here opens  you up to  hundreds and hundreds  of  miles of  logging roads.  Some of the local destinations from here are  Abbot, Parkman , Guilford , DoverFoxcroft, Cambridge , Dexter, Newport, Greeville, Shirley, West Forks , Bingham,
For your convience here is a place you can rent a 4 wheeler, about 22 miles north of here ...  Northwoods OutFitters  866- 223 -1380 ...  Greenville   Maine 
 there is a second place in Kokadjo Maine ,  but through personal experience,  I'll do nothing for them except turn around in their yard !( they are a onory bunch ! )
