Millinocket is a meals, supplies, and lodging hub for those visiting 204,733-acre Baxter State Park and the wilderness surrounding it. In the park, you can hike up mile-high Mt. Katahdin, the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail. Just outside the park’s southern boundary, you can go whitewater rafting on the west branch of the Penobscot River. In the winter, you can go cross-country skiing or snowmobiling on more than 350 miles of groomed trails in the region. You can also go fishing in the area for landlocked salmon, trout, bass, pickerel or whitefish.
