Old Canada Road National Scenic Byway

73.3 miles: 1 hours, 28 minutes

The Old Canada Road National Scenic Byway (US 201) begins at Solon and meanders through Maine's north woods to the Canadian border, passing from low hills to wooded mountain ranges. This wilderness region is a recreational paradise year-round. Fall brings a spectacular display of colors to the forest.


Moose crossing signs dot US 201 along this journey into the Maine wilderness. Catch glimpses of the Kennebec River Reservoir and Kennebec River as you travel toward Bingham. US 201 hugs the shores of Wyman Lake and the Kennebec River before crossing over for a view of the Dead River rushing by. North of West Forks is a vast wilderness known as Moose Alley.
