In western Maine, every season has much to offer in this region.
The mountains are perfect for hiking and climbing in the spring and summer, and there’s great skiing in the winter.
Access to the Appalachian Trail makes for great hiking anytime and there’s wonderful foliage in the fall.
The lakes and rivers give up all Maine has to offer year-round: fishing, swimming, boating, ice skating and ice fishing.
This region is the home to Maine’s world famous covered bridges as well as many museums, restored farmhouses, antique shops and other historical sites of interest. Wind your way through the towns of Fryburg, South Andover, Wilsons Mills and South Windham to relive our glorious history.
Sunday River, Shawnee Peak and Sugarloaf are just a few of the many ski areas in the region and the snowmobiling is like nowhere else. There are endless miles to explore on the interconnecting trail system and for those of you who really like to rough it, dogsledding is also easily arranged!
The towns of Naples, Windham, Harrison and Bridgton surround beautiful Sebago Lake, the second largest in the state of Maine and it’s a hop, skip and jump to the twin cities of Lewiston and Auburn for some historical sightseeing.
If you’ve already visited the Atlantic coast of Maine and would like to experience more of what the state has to offer without heading into the wilderness, the Maine Lakes and Mountain region is for you. History, beauty and adventure are all right next door in this area!
