What better way to mesh excitement with the beauty of the Maine outdoors than cruising on an All Terrain Vehicle. The Maine Highlands offers hundreds of miles of ITS trails for ATV use from spring to mid-December before being used strictly for snowmobiles.
There are also multiple locations between the Moosehead Lake region and the Katahdin region where ATV rentals and guided tours are available. Enjoy the thrill the Maine wood and countryside has to offer from the rugged seat of an ATV, right here in The Maine Highlands.
Along with miles and miles of ITS trails, The Maine Highlands is home to state-owned and leased multi-use trails as well as reserved public lands that allow ATVs. Here's a list and some links!
