Hunting season peaks, fishing is productive, and the foliage is absolutely stunning during the latter part of the year.

Summer is an inviting time to visit the Moosehead region, as guests are greeted with a plethora of activities. A trip to Mt. Kineo State Park is a must. There, the hiker can catch his breath when he reaches the peak of the daunting mountain just to lose it again at the astounding panoramic views of the distant ranges. The pebble beach at the base offers a picture perfect setting for that picnic lunch, and the golfer can putt the afternoon away on the manicured course greens. A shuttle boat from Rockwood Village to Mt. Kineo runs hourly from Memorial Day thru Columbus Day.
