The best trails in the Bangor Maine area are located around the Katahdin Lodge. It sits on 40 acres, but provides access to two hundred miles of trails on 400 square miles. Many of these are not for novices, although some would be appropriate. But, whatever your level of expertise, the trees and the wildlife will be worth the trip.

With miles of mud, water crossings that come up to about as high as your four-wheeler can take, some rocks, and a number of challenging steep hills, the amateur and even expert ATV driver will have plenty of excitement and enjoyment on these trails. The Lodge trails join with the Aroostook County ATV trail system.

You could literally stay for a few days at the lodge and not hit all the trails. Probably one of the best features of this well-forested series of trails is all the water. With streams to cross, waterfalls to check out, and rivers to avoid driving into, it is understandable why these trails are so muddy.

When you’re not busy four-wheeling, there are other great things to do. You can go on a maple syrup production tour, golf, fish, or even go whitewater rafting. If you go in the winter, there is snowmobiling. And if you like hunting, bring your permit and your gun.

To get to Kadadhin Lodge, you’ll want to leave Bangor, Maine heading north on I-95. About 80 miles later, take exit 264. Take a left onto Main Street (Route 11). Follow the road about 19 miles to the lodge. From there, trail access is easy to find. Have fun and get muddy!
