Not north, but downeast, the Bold Coast is pretty amazing.

You need to be more specific. This is like asking “what’s cool to see in the entire state of Vermont”.

Anywhere up by katahdin is cool, patten/sherman area has some good views on the highway and around that area

Stop into Sherman Mills, super cute village right off the highway, then catch Rt. 2 north through Island Falls up to Houlton.

It is still firmly winter up there right now. Penobscot river trails is still open I believe. You can rent skis from them for any donation amount. If you have snow shoes or skis Sebois river trails, katahdin woods and waters, shin brook falls are all cool areas by the north entrance to Baxter. Scenic overlook in Patten on route 11 is beautiful.

New England outdoor center has some good views, trails, and a brewery now. Bissell brothers milo location is a bit of a destination in an area not many people visit.

Orono bog walk is one of the most accessible unique areas in Maine.

If you go in spring timing it between winter and bug season is key. There usually is a week or two that is beautiful. You can go fiddle head picking if you know what your doing.

This is like asking "what cool things can you see in Ireland? About the same land area, even.

Katahdin Iron Works is kind of neat

If you want to go on a minor adventure check out the ghost trains up near Chamberlain Lake.

You can’t get there right now

Unless the gatehouses into the NMW are shut down, you can get there at any time of the year. It just depends on how determined you are.

In the winter the only access to the trains is by snowmobile. Most clubs in that region have closed their trials.

There’s a cool fire tower you can climb in Weston. The view is good.

You are talking about a huge portion of the state, but considering some Mainers have never even been to The County, I appreciate where your head is at.

I'll just make a list:

Baxter State Park The Golden Road North Maine Woods The County when the potatoes are in bloom Long Lake The St. John River valley

I hope that helps!
