America's Scenic Byways

State Route 11

37 miles -

Route 11 Scenic Byway lies in the Fish River valley of Aroostook County in the north central area of the State of Maine. It is on a principal corridor connecting Maine with the Canadian Province of New Brunswick. The land is unique to the northeastern region of the country, as it is sparsely vegetated with deciduous and coniferous trees, leaving the area's rolling topography covered in grassland and wildflower meadows. The viewsheds on Route 11 are particularly outstanding, with the inclusion of the Fish River and numerous lakes that are visible from the byway.
