If you’re a long-time reader, you know how much we advocate for getting outside in Maine. From beach days to trail blazing, there’s something for everyone who loves the outdoors here in Vacationland. While there’s no shortage of options and each one is special and unique, there are some that are truly classics. These might not be perfect for everyone as some require a fair bit of outdoors practice before being explored. But, each one is breathtaking in its own way.
1. The 100-Mile Wilderness, Northern Maine
The name of this route is not misleading. There are about 100 miles between towns on this section of the Appalachian trail. Not only is this section of the AT remote, it’s also the hardest part of the famed trek. If you can tackle it, you’ll be rewarded with all of the beauty that Northern Maine has to offer.
