Southern Bangor and Aroostook Trail Description

The Southern Bangor and Aroostook Trail runs between Houlton and Phair Junction (just shy of Presque Isle), where the railroad siding once connected to a company potato house. The trail—also known as the Houlton to Phair Junction Trail after its endpoints—winds through forested areas and small communities, where you can find a meal and lodging.

The trail stretches for 37 miles and links the in-between towns of Monticello, Bridgewater and Mars Hill. Note, the trail allows ATVs and snowmobiles, and you may encounter logging trucks. Cyclists and hikers should yield the right of way to logging trucks.

To continue north to Presque Isle from Phair Junction, you'll need to follow an ATV trail. West of the town, in Mapleton, you can pick up the northern segment of the trail, known as the Bangor and Aroostook Trail.

Parking and Trail Access

To access the Southern Bangor and Aroostook Trail, take Interstate 95 north to Houlton and park at the Park and Ride off US 1, north of the Interstate.
