Bike Routes - Northern Aroostook

Description

Located on the shore of St. John River which serves the border between Canada and the US, Fort Kent offers a convenient point from which to explore the uppermost reaches of Maine. Fort Kent is home to French Acadian ancestry; you will hear bilingual influence in the voices of its people. It is a warm and spirited community, offering hospitality, natural beauty, and lots of interesting things to do. You will ride by forests, rural farms, fields, and water views with many opportunities to see wildlife. Watch for moose!

Starting points:

For New Sweden Loop, Stockholm Loop, Limestone/Grimes Rd Loops, and the three The County loops (24-mile, 33-mile, and 92-mile loops): They all start from the parking lot on Herschel Street in Caribou. Notify the Caribou Police Department at (207)493-3301 if you will be parking in this lot overnight.

For St. John Valley loops, Tour de Valley, 62-mile Tour de Valley, Frenchville Loop, and 20-mile Ride: All rides begin and end at the Park & Ride lot at the Fort Kent Municipal Building on Main Street.
