Try something unique this summer.

Mountainview Resort in Jackman, ME.  Everyone wants their family vacation to be a memorable time together that you remember with laughs over the Christmas Dinner table.  We have a suggestion. Escape to northern Maine and spend some quality time together.

Jackman is a town in Somerset County, Maine, United States. The population was 862 at the 2010 census, but there is plenty to do, and plenty of space to do it in!

Hiking
There are trails for everyone. A popular “moderate” trail is Sally Mountain, described as “Good hike with excellent views of Attean Lake. Two mile walk on train tracks followed by 1.6 mile wooded trail to the top that becomes relatively steep near the summit. Total elevation gain was about 1100ft. Plenty of rocky areas at the top to have a snack or view the surrounding lakes and mountains.”  Sounds like the perfect family excursion.   And there are more. See the list at: http://www.jackmanmaine.org/maine-hiking.php.  For example:  Moxie Falls, One of the highest set of falls in New England: the main drop is over 80 feet, which plummets into a deep slate gorge. (Very easy, .6 mile)

ATV/Four Wheeling
ATV riding has grown in popularity in the past few years and you will find some of the best ATV trails in Maine in the Jackman-Moose River Region; over 300+ miles that will take you through unspoiled wilderness and on up to scenic vistas. From Jackman you can ride south to the Forks, east toward Rockwood and as of July 21, 2007, you can go north across the Canadian border into Quebec, offering you even more places to explore. Check out the Border Riders Club for maps and info.

Fishing
Whatever type of fishing experience you are looking for, the numerous lakes, streams and rivers in the Jackman-Moose River Region can offer hours of fishing enjoyment for the beginner or the experienced angler. You are sure to catch brook trout, Lake trout, land locked Salmon, and splake in our waters, that is, of course, depending on your luck. The fishing season in this region goes through the end of September with some restrictions on the brooks and streams.
