HIKING AND MOUNTAIN BIKING AROUND JACKMAN – There are
hundreds of miles of wilderness open to the public with many hiking and biking
trails throughout. Most trails are rated for the novice or the experienced so
that even your youngest child can feel the accomplishment of making it to the
top or the seasoned hiker can feel the challenge.
Whether on foot or by peddle, you will have an opportunity to see abundant
wildlife in their element, incredible views of neighboring mountains and valleys,
old fire towers at the summits, plus babbling streams or roaring waterfalls.
We will be happy to share our trail directions and maps or you can call the Jackman
chamber of commerce for more information.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Don’t forget to take along appropriate clothing for the season, a compass, plenty
of water and a container to collect some wild blueberries or raspberries to snack
on! They are abundant in July and August. Bikers should be aware there are
times when trails are temporarily closed or rerouted.
ATV AROUND JACKMAN - Share a wilderness experience
with the family on your ATV's. We have miles of ATV trails in the region that can
take you over bridges, through water (solid base) or up a mountain.
And you do not have to "trailer Out" as trail access is just 300 yards from your
cabin door. We have ATV maps for you or you can go to
Club for more information.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
ATV Registration: Need to re-register? You can do this
online at Maine.gov
or in town when you arrive. Maine has very little state owned land so without the
permission of private landowners, the excellent ATV riding we have may be lost.
PLEASE stay on the trails, use the bridges, don’t make bootleg trails and please
respect "NO ATV" signs.
Gas Savings:If you book 2 or more reservations with us
within a 45 day period, you can store your ATV trailer here. Hurry! Space is limited.
CANOEING AROUND JACKMAN - For those with more ambition,
a 46 mile 2-4 day (depends on your level of skill) wilderness canoe trip, the "Bow
Trip", starts and ends in Jackman on Attean Pond. It requires 2 portages to complete
and has many campsites and hiking trails along the way.
We do have cabins available mid week for overnight stay for before and after your
trip. Call us for availablity or more information.
For guided tours on the Bow Trip, contact Cry of the Loon Outdoor
A shorter canoe trip is from Big Wood Lake down the Moose River to Long Pond,
only 6 miles! If you are staying with us, we can arrange to pick you up at the
end of the day.
WHITE WATER RAFTING AROUND JACKMAN - How about this for a fantastic family adventure. Take a guided tour down the Historic Kennebec River with one of the rafting companies in the area. Enjoy hours of fun filled excitement, have a riverside lunch then come home to Cozy Cove Cabins and share your experiences. Spring (fastest water) and Summer are the best time for rafting …you will get wet!
