Snowmobiling News
























































Some of the most stunning winter scenery in the state lies here in the Katahdin Area.  Located just off Interstate 95 we have hundreds of miles of groomed trails, sled rentals, and comfortable accommodations and trailside restaurants. With breath taking views of Mount Katahdin this area is sure to become your favorite snowmobile vacation destination.


The Area

The scenic snowmobiling region surrounding Mount Katahdin offers extensive service for snowmobilers in the Towns of Millinocket-East Millinocket, and Medway and the many smaller recreational communities along the trail system.


Snowmobile Trails

Ten area snowmobile clubs coordinate their efforts to groom approximately 350 miles of networked trails, including the new Katahdin Loop Trail. The ungroomed perimeter road of Baxter State Park is also open to snowmobiling, offering a slower paced sledding adventure in Maine's largest park. Stop into park headquarters in Millinocket for information on access and regulations.


Cross Country Ski Trails

The Northern Timber Cruisers Snowmobile and Cross Country Ski Club grooms and maintains over 20 miles of wilderness cross country ski trails. It is one of the few areas that provides track set trails and scenic views based on a no use fee. The two most popular areas include the trails at the Northern Timber Cruisers Clubhouse on the way to Baxter State Park and the Bait Hole Trails south of Millinocket on Route 11




If you can walk, you can go snowshoeing. There isn't a long learning curve and it doesn't require a large investment. It also doesn't require a lot of special techniques.

The Bait Hole Area (BH SS Map) offers over 5 miles of designated snow shoe trails with several different loops to choose from. You can start today, and have fun, immediately!



The Katahdin Region offers numerous opportunities to ice fish for trout, togue, salmon, splake, smelts, pickerel and perch. No need to stay inside during the long winter months waiting for the sun to come out dreaming about open water and summer fun. Ice fishing action can be fast and furious when winter seals the lakes under ice. Best of all, there are no mosquitoes or flies to "bug" you.

Ambajejus Boom House

Ambajejus Boom House - Click this photo to view a larger size.The Ambajejus Boom House is located on nearby Ambajejus Lake and accessible by boat or snowmobile. The Boom House area served as the final collection point of the lumber that was harvested from the forests many, many miles north of it, sawed into 4-foot logs and floated down the mighty West Branch of the Penobscot, and then corralled and hauled by large tow boats & smaller "boom jumpers" to the paper mills. This building is host to scores of logging artifacts and provides many insights into the old river drives that brought the wood to its final destination during the years prior to 1971. The Boom House has been lovingly restored and maintained by Chuck Harris, one of the many individuals who participated in the last of the great log drives. His recollections of this bygone era and the history behind the drives are worth a visit and the collection of photos by Rick Brooker recording these treasures are worth the time to explore! The Ambajejus Boom House is open June - October.
