It only seems fitting that a cross-country ski loop in the northeastern most corner of the United States be called “Top of the World.” That’s the unofficial name, but it certainly fits. Fort Kent, called the gateway to the Allagash, also serves up fine international views on the trails. The town is found in Upper Saint John Valley, where the Saint John River is the natural boundary between Maine and New Brunswick, Canada. A French-Acadian culture thrives in the north of Maine, and the hint of French can be heard among the residents. Though you don’t need a passport to get into Fort Kent, it sure seems you are in another world. Surface quality: Groomed for skate and classical.
