Deboullie Public Lands
The nearly 29,000 acres of remote wilderness to explore in the Deboullie Public Reserved Land is ideal if you’re seeking that get-away-from-it-all backcountry experience for your next hike or camping trip. The vast forested landscape is dotted with 17 ponds and surrounded by mountains. The 4-mile Deboullie Mountain Trail brings you to the 1,981-foot summit of the mountain with amazing views of the entire region. For a longer hike, try the Deboullie Loop Trail or Black Mountain Loop Trail – all hikes take about four hours to complete, passing ponds and wending through the woods as you go. The ponds are renowned for excellent fishing for native trout, landlocked salmon and Arctic charr.
There are lean-tos and camping sites along several of the trails, all located by one of many ponds, so bring your fishing pole.
Fees are collected at checkpoints for day use or camping.
