Aroostook County is still relatively new in offering adventure based activities, but the pinnacle of this type of trip may be found on the Allagash Wilderness Waterway.
The Waterway is a 92-mile-long (148 km) protected area extending from Aroostook County, Maine into Piscataquis County, Maine. It is a ribbon of lakes, ponds, rivers and streams of the Maine North Woods that includes much of the Allagash River. Canoeing, fishing, hunting, and camping are among the activities permitted. An entire guiding industry has cropped up to cater to tourists and others who wish to travel the Waterway.
The region also has hundreds of miles of multi-use trails, which provide mountain bikers with plenty
of rugged terrain to explore. Some of the trails also are for ATV use in the summer and snowmobile use in the winter.
