Welcome to North Maine Woods
The North Woods are logging country. In the 19th century, Maine's legendary lumberjacks floated logs down the rivers in massive 'log drives' until the practice polluted the water and the drives were replaced by trucks. The woods here are crisscrossed by rough logging roads, which are often used by hunters and outdoor adventurers with 4WDs.
Don't underestimate this part of the country when you're driving through. Your cell phone won't work here, you may not see another driver for miles and there sure as heck ain't no Walmart to pick up a spare tire.
