About this map

National Geographic's recreational maps (TI 400 and 401) of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway 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.

About The Allagash Wilderness Waterway 

The Allagash Wilderness Waterway is a majestic 92-mile-long ribbon of rivers, lakes, ponds, and streams that winds its way through the heart of the North Maine Woods. Established in 1966 by the Maine State Legislature and managed by the Bureau of Parks and Recreation, Department of Conservation, the protected waterway is located in the middle of a working forest and was the first state-administered component of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System. Moose, bobcat, black bear, beaver, bald eagle, osprey, deer, otter, loon, and trout are only some of the species that call the woods and waterways home.
