Aroostook County runs along Maine’s north and northwestern border. Synonymous with potatoes, and there are miles and miles of snow-covered fields, the county is larger than the area of Rhode Island and Connecticut put together. With 6,453 square miles, the county sprawls along the border with Atlantic Canada. It is, as they say, up there. Presque Isle, in the central section of Aroostook, is home to, among other things, a University of Maine campus and the first state park in Maine. In 1938, interested residents of the community gave the state one hundred acres of land with the idea of starting a state park. One year later, that idea became a reality with the creation of Aroostook State Park. Now more than 600 acres, the park takes in Echo Lake and Quaggy Jo Mountain, the park’s most distinctive landmark. Surface quality: Tracked as needed; usually after snow.
