The Maine HighlandsWhen legendary painter and native son, Marsden Hartley, first viewed Mount Katahdin, he described it as “exceeding all my expectations so far that I am sort of helpless with words.” Good thing he brought along the paint and brushes. As Maine’s highest peak, Katahdin has attracted artists, adventurers and lovers of the natural world for centuries. And like Mount Katahdin, Maine’s largest lake, nearby Moosehead, offers legendary experiences of its own for visitors with each new day.
That’s the beauty of The Maine Highlands region. Where outdoor adventure, history and culture come together within a stunning natural amphitheater of mountains, lakes and woods.
