Maine's Scenic Route 26

45.1 miles: 1 hours, 1 minutes

SR 26 travels through the mountain and lakes of southwest Maine. Begin in bucolic Shaker farm country and enjoy an idyllic drive on a tree-lined highway through the rolling hills spreading out from the White Mountain region.


The White Mountains border the landscape of lush trees and tranquil lakes you’ll find alongside SR 26. The route begins in New Gloucester and meanders past rivers and lakes and through charming small towns and forested hills toward the White Mountain range.
