These are some of the best motorcycle roads in Maine. Being the largest state in New England, there are tremendous amounts of motorcycle riding to discover. From iconic lighthouses to scenic ski mountains, ride through the tranquil towns, and of course, its fantastic coastal national park. 

Acadia National Park Loop

Park Loop Road, Route 3, 198, 102

The "Crown Jewel of the North Atlantic Coast" has 27 miles of historic motorcycling roads to ride. These roads, including Park Loop Road, offer spectacular views of the National Park Atlantic coast. There are many overlooks available to pause and take in the scenery, and like many other National Parks, the roads are excellently maintained.

Perhaps the most spectacular roads in Maine are along this route, which could be started on Rt 4 in Madrid and connect to 17 south which offers majestic overlooks of nearby mountains and lakes down to Rumford. Route 26 offers great open scenery and carves through Grafton Notch State Park all the way into the NH border.
