The Katahdin Woods & Waters Scenic Byway is where you can relive the experiences of the hearty souls who ventured into the great north woods. Travel the headwaters of the Penobscot River, where ancient trails and portages were used by the Wabanaki (collectively the people of the Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, Micmac, Maliseet and Abenaki tribes), followed by early explorers, trappers, lumbermen, and modern day recreationists. View or climb Katahdin (Ktaadn), home to the Indian Spirit, Pamola, the Storm God and Protector of Ktaadn. Described as having the body of a man with the head of a moose and the wings and talons of an eagle, Pamola was feared by native people and made exploration of Ktaadn taboo. Follow in the footsteps of artists, such as, Frederic Church, Marsden Hartley, Winslow Homer, Carl Sprinchorn, and Jake Day, who were seduced by the beauty and grandeur of the region.
