Jay, Livermore & Livermore Falls
The region of Jay, Livermore & Livermore Falls is located on the edge of Maine's western mountains and is the gateway to several ski areas. Spruce Mountain Ski Slope in Jay is a blast from the past where you rise 300 vertical feet to the summit via three rope tow lifts. This ski area is located near the Androscoggin River, where you can go canoeing, kayaking or bass fishing. You can also take the Source to Sea Canoe Trek to explore the river. The Androscoggin Watershed Council provides the necessary equipment for free. In Jay, you can hike to overlooks of the river at Pine Island Park or hike along a one-mile trail through an orchard at North Jay White Granite Park.
Livermore is home to the Washburn Norlands Living History Center, a 455-acre complex that includes a restored Victorian mansion, large barn, farmer’s cottage, church, granite library and a one-room schoolhouse. Here you can see such rural late 19th-century living history experiences as becoming a scholar in the schoolhouse and taking part in the daily chores of the 1870s. Programs range from tours to daylong and overnight programs.
