Explore Maine

Bike Tour – Katahdin Views

The 33-mile loop is very scenic and challenging with mountain views—including Mt. Katahdin, the state’s highest peak—and picturesque farms. The north Maine woods and Mt. Katahdin provide the dramatic backdrop for the extremely challenging 46-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.
