Description: Northern Maine features some wild and scenic destinations but the roads are not going to be the most twisty you can find. Generally fast and flowing the Maine highways are usually clear of traffic. Highway 11 South passes by Eagle lake, Saint Froid Lake and the Winterville Forest. Swinging back to the North you will ride through Presque Isle, home to many recreational opportunities ranging from hiking in the summer to cross-country skiing in the winter through the edge of the North Maine Woods. The North Maine Woods are the largest tract of undeveloped land east of the Mississippi River, covering approximately 3.5 million acres.
