Location: Throughout Aroostook County
Description: The back roads of Aroostook County are perfect for biking. The roads are good, the traffic is light, and the views are lovely across forest land, rolling potato fields, and gentle ridges.
Favorite Season(s) to Visit: Late spring to late fall
Why It’s Special: Many people from southern Maine think of The County as flat potato fields too far away to consider visiting. In fact the landscape is varied, rolling, and beautiful. The people are friendly, hard-working, and welcoming to tourists. It’s an interesting drive to get up there, and it’s well worth seeing the area to enjoy the natural beauty and get some sense of the lives of northern Mainers.
Tips: Use a Delorme Gazetteer to find the side roads that are the best routes for seeing the landscape by bicycle.
