Golden Road

Golden Road

This largely unpaved, 96-mile road through Maine’s northwoods might as well have been paved in gold for the Great Northern Paper Company, for which it provided access to lucrative woodlots between Millinocket and the Canadian border. Gird your shocks and enjoy Katahdin views, scenic whitewater overlooks, pristine lakes and campgrounds—maybe even a moose sighting.
