Maine, a Guide down East

By Workers of the Federal Writers Project of the Works Progress Administration for the State of Maine | Go to book overview

At 149.5 m. is the entrance to a trail.

Right on this trail 6 m. to the Green Mountain Fire Station from which is a fine view over the great level plateau, a vast expanse of forest land and dead water.

At 152 m. is a Log Storehouse and Stable of the Great Northern Paper Company.

At 153.1 m. is the junction with a local road.

Left on this road is Penobscot Lake, 5 m., a forest-rimmed sheet of black water, across whose surface echo the calls of waterfowl and woods birds.

DOLE (Township 3, Range 5), 153.6 m., with a residence and supply base of the Great Northern Paper Company, is almost buried in the dreary stretches of swamp land covering a considerable part of the township. Around Dole Pond, Long Pond, and Penobscot Lake, the forest struggles against the dead water overflow.

Boundary Cottage, 168.9 m. (R), 5 miles southeast of St. Zacharie, Que., is a customs office, near the entrance to a private road (open 7-8) of the Great Northern Paper Company, and is a headquarters for wood crews during the winter.

The mills and headquarters of the Great Northern Paper Company are at Millinocket and East Millinocket; the company conducts lumbering operations in all parts of the north country, and is particularly active in this section. When a cutting operation is started, tote roads are laid out through the forest for the transportation of the logs to the nearest point of shipment. These roads are simply slashes through the forest with the stumps often left in the ground. Snow covers the stumps and rough base in winter, packing down to a smooth sledding surface. Horses and oxen provided the early hauling power, but of late years tractors have been used in their stead.


TOUR 10: From BRUNSWICK to CANADIAN LINE (Quebec, P.Q.), 168.4 m., US 201.

Via Topsham, Gardiner, Hallowell, Augusta, Vassalboro, Winslow, Waterville, Fairfield, Skowhegan, Norridgewock, Madison, Anson, Bingham, Jackman, and Moose River.

Two-lane, hard-surfaced road-bed; in winter often impassable north of Madison.

BEAUTIFUL river scenery characterizes the southern part of the route which follows the course of the Kennebec, past several power plants, then on through lumbering regions and fish and game country. Historic as well as scenic, the route also offers diversion at inland resorts.

BRUNSWICK (alt. 30, Brunswick Town, pop. 7604) (seeBRUNSWICK), 0 m., is at a junction with US 1 (seeTour 1, sec. a).
