As one of Maine's premier golf destinations, the Sugarloaf Golf Course is a must-play for any golfer. This Robert Trent Jones Jr. course is sculpted into the mountain and provides golfers with stunning panoramic mountain views around every corner. Admired for its beauty, this 6,910-yard course is not without its challenges; dramatic elevation changes, winding fairways, unforgiving bunkers, as well as rock-lined streams and greens put a premium on accuracy and precision.

Biking popularity has grown during the past few years. During this time, trails used only by hikers and cross-country skiers experienced a steady increase in bike traffic. Eventually, the demand for new places to ride led to trails being constructed with biking in mind.

As a result, Maine’s Northwestern Mountains Region has become a popular destination for the sport, offering opportunities for novice and expert riders alike.
