Suggested Moose Drives

Want to see a moose while you're visiting? Try one of these scenic rides. Generally, very early morning or early evening just before dusk are the best times to see moose grazing at the side of the road.

Rt. 161 – Caribou to Fort Kent / US Rt. 1–Caribou to Van Buren
Though there are no hard and fast statistics on this issue, these have to be two of the best places to see a moose. If you travel the full length of either road leaving Caribou into the St. John Valley, most days, you'll see 2 or more.

Rt. 11 – Ashland to Patten
If there's another sure fire route to drive to see a moose, this has to be it. This road also has the added benefit of beautiful views of Mount Katahdin.

If shorter drives are more what you had in mind, the options are too numerous to list. Once you get here, ask around for where the moose are this season and you're sure to get directions for a short drive to find your moose!
