The Most Remote Spot In Maine Is As Unlikely As It Is Breathtaking

Much of Maine can feel remote and off-the-beaten path. Drive just a few miles outside of Portland and you have the opportunity to be in the woods and, seemingly, miles away from any other people. But, ever wonder where the MOST remote place in the state is? We did! That’s how we came across a surprising discovery. Two biologists have been searching for the scientifically most “remote” place in each state and their research in Maine led them to Baxter State Park.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

To learn more about Maine’s most remote spot and the journey to find it, visit the Remote Footprints website which serves as the main hub of information for the project. You’ll be able to see additional photos and video of the first trek to find the spot!
