Northern Maine, especially in the Northern part of the state has more uncivilized areas than you would expect. The far northern part of the state is called the North Woods and this is pretty much what it is. There are no paved highways, just a maze of dirt roads where it is very easy to get lost. But Northern Maine is not the only great part of the state. The coast is always scenic and it gets more and more lonely the further North you go. And the White Mountains, just over the New Hampshire border are also very scenic.
