..... The northern-most of Maine's scenic byways, State Route 11 follows the rolling hills between Portage and Fort Kent. This drive offers outstanding views of wildflower meadows, Eagle Lake and Maine's tallest peak, Mount Katahdin. Because much of the route is forested, you might catch a glimpse of eagles and moose along the way. Route 11 is a primary north-south corridor connecting Aroostook County, Maine, with New Brunswick, Canada. Settled by the French-Acadians in the 19th century, the region is proud of the strong Acadian influence on its food and cultural traditions.
