Fort KentAroostook region of Maine along the USA border with Canada. It is at the end of U.S. Highway 1.
In addition to the roads there is a public snowmobile/walking trail called the "Heritage Trail" that starts in the McDonald's parking lot and ends on the otherside of town by traveling 'behind' the town for the entire length of the town. Often you will see locals with snowshoes on and others snowmobiling. In the summer it is a leisurely way to go around town
Fort Kent has amazing country sides with beautiful rolling fields used for potato farming. Do not be afraid to take side roads as they often lead to these. Some of the nicer ones are Charette Hill Road (Half is closed NOV-MAY), North Perley Brook Road, and South Perley Brook road. They all end up back in town one way or another so ride them until the end and take in the scenery.
