The Ultimate Maine Waterfalls Road Trip Is Right Here – And You’ll Want To Do It

Maine is paradise for those who love the outdoors. From crashing ocean waves to sky-high mountains, we’ve got an outdoor activity for just about everyone. But, to be fair, some of what we have to offer isn’t for the beginner. Don’t fancy yourself an Appalachian Trail hiker anytime soon? That’s okay – feel free to ease into things! We recommend starting with some waterfall visits. Plentiful and impressive, Maine has over 100 significant waterfalls, which exist in just about every county from York to Aroostook.

Because a road trip with more than 100 stops is more of a lifestyle change than a fun jaunt, I’ve created a Western Maine focused trip that you can complete in about five hours of drive time. This will give you the rest of the day to hike, explore, stop for photos at the side of the road and (most importantly) replenish the snack supply at one of our local stores. We’ve even included stops for lunch and dinner at some great local spots.

Check out the Google map that will tell you exactly where to go. You can even make edits to the route to add in a trip to Aunt Edna’s on your way home.

And, if you like it, we’ll create some that will take you into other areas of the state as well.
