ATV Trail Tour Day One: The Forks to Moosehead Lake

Office Manager Lisa Fisher and Guide Brandi Barnett took the crew on some of the smoothest offroad trails in Maine’s North Woods to tour Greenville, a perfect day trip from The Forks. The upside to a slightly rainy day? No dust on the trails!

The route to Moosehead has a few nice lake stops to enjoy the view or go for a swim on a hot day. In Greenville, the ATV gang checked out local landmarks — the Stress Free Moose (great trailside lunch,) the Moosehead Marine Museum, and the Steamboat Katahdin.

The nearby road to one of Maine’s most interesting historical sites, the B-52 Memorial was temporarily closed due to logging. An excellent reason to take another ride to Greenville in the fall!

ATV Trail Tour Day Two: The Forks to Lake Parlin

The section of trails between Northern Outdoors and Lake Parlin offers a variety of logging roads with big views, and technical rocky trails in the woods. Famous snowmobiling destination, Coburn Mountain, lies in this area (unfortunately, there is no ATV access up the mountain.)

Great lunch stops between Northern Outdoors and Lake Parlin: Hawk’s Nest Lodge and Rachel’s Restaurant at 15 Mile Stream Outfitters. In the winter there are a lot more trailside lunch options.

ATV Trail Tour Day Three: Jackman, Maine

For the final day, ATV Illustrated and Maine Outdoor Sports trailered the side-by-sides up to Jackman to ride a whole new set of trails. Days like these…
