Katahdin Views Loop: Patten - Smyrna Mills - Island Falls

Ride Description

The north Maine woods and Mt. Katahdin provide the dramatic backdrop for the extremely challenging 47-mile loop. This loop takes cyclists through woods, open farmland, small lumbering communities, and over hills that heave the roads from ridge to ridge—hills that make this ride memorable. The final stretch between Patten, Sherman, and Island Falls lies in the shadow of Mt. Katahdin, and the views of the peak are awe-inspiring. Be sure to stop at the Lumberman's Museum in Patten. They have an incredible display of lumbering artifacts.
