The Ancient Forest In Maine That’s Right Out Of A Storybook

We write a lot about the history that resides in Maine, but there’s so much more to the state’s past than just artifacts and old buildings. In fact, some of the most interesting historical examples in the state can be seen in the form of Old Growth Forests. These forests, located throughout the United States, represent a wooded area that’s been untouched for centuries. Most of the time these areas are hard to access, ensuring that the trees are intact and allowed to grow unbothered. It’s a sight to behold and one of the best examples is right here in Maine.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
