This 13,000 acre unit managed by the Bureau of Public Lands is located about halfway between Brownville Junction and Millinocket off Route 11. Large lakes, hardwood ridges, flat areas of softwood and good views of the mountain, including Katahdin, make this an attractive place for nature lovers to enjoy fishing, boating, camping and wildlife watching.

This view is appreciated through all four seasons, but is most striking in autumn as Katahdin forms the backdrop for the multi-colored and uninterrupted canvas of fall foliage that extends from the monition to Route 11. Turn to the east and experience a panoramic view of rolling hills, forests and fields that nearly equals the westerly view.
