North of the Rangeley Lakes area, running along the Canadian border, is the Jackman Region. The town of Jackman is the only town of any size in this region and has been a destination for outdoor enthusiasts and sportsmen for years.
Nestled among the lakes and mountains of the Moose River Valley, Jackman serves as a jumping off place for fishermen, snowmobilers, hikers, and bikers.
Take the Bow Trip, a 34 mile wilderness canoe trip, or bike the Jackman Rockwood Trail, which provides mountain bikers 30 miles of trail runs, rail beds, and old gravel roads. In the winter, snowmobilers make Jackman a hub of activity as ITS 86 and 89 provide links to The Forks, the Moosehead/Katahdin region, Eustis, and Quebec. Many campsites and hiking trails are found in the area, making access to a true wilderness experience easy.
One of the larger lakes in the region, Wood Pond, is right in Jackman. Nearby are Little Big Wood Pond, Attean Pond, and Holub Pond. Further to the south are Spencer Lake and King and Bartlett Pond. North of Jackman and north of the south branch of the Penobscot River are Penobscot Lake and Dole Pond.
The Jackman area offers four seasons of wilderness adventure coupled with breath-taking, natural beauty for any who desire a more remote outdoor experience.
