National Geographic's recreational maps of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway (TI 400 and 401) are two-sided, waterproof maps designed to meet the needs of outdoor enthusiasts and tourists alike. Divided into two separate maps for exceptional detail, each is loaded with valuable information such as watercraft regulations, rules for recreational use and access, river difficulty scale, checkpoints, visitor and ranger station locations, and more. A UTM and latitude/longitude grid, as well as compass rose and scale bar will keep you pointed in the right direction.
Year-round activities abound in the region and the location of scenic viewpoints, wildlife viewing, boat launches and canoe carry downs, lookout towers, amphitheaters, ATV trails, and other points of interest are clearly marked as are park and forest boundaries and access points. Campers will appreciate the attention paid to noting the variety of camping facilities available including primitive campsites, group campsites, rental cabins, RV camping, picnic shelters, restrooms, parking, and trailheads. Whether paddling the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, camping in the North Maine Woods, or driving the Maine Scenic Byway, these maps perform as highly functional travel tools that are as useful as they are remarkably crafted.
The Allagash Wilderness Waterway North map details the far northern reaches of the waterway on the Canadian border south to Churchill Lake. The front or north side of the map includes the area stretching from the Fort Kent State historic site on the Saint John River south to Saint Froid Lake. It also includes the Saint Francis, Fish, and Allagash Rivers, and the northern portion of Eagle Lake. The south side of the map shows Long Lake, Umsaskis Lake, the five Musquacook lakes, Spider Lake, and Pleasant Lake.
More than just a map, National Geographic Trails Illustrated topographic maps are designed to take you into the wilderness and back. Printed on tear-resistant, waterproof material, this map can go anywhere you do. Each map is based on exact reproductions of USGS topographic map information, updated, customized, and enhanced to meet the unique features of each area. The maps include valuable wilderness tips and Leave No Trace guidelines, along with updated trails, trailheads, points of interest, campgrounds, and much more. With a new color palette and stunning shaded relief, backcountry navigation has never been easier.
