Millinocket -

MILLINOCKET, Maine — The Northern Timber Cruisers ATV and Snowmobile Club announces the Katahdin Region Multi-Use Trail (K.R.M.U.T.) is now open for ATV riding. After five years of planning and negotiations, this collaborative effort between the Northern Timber Cruisers, landowner Acadian Timberlands (formerly KFM), Katahdin area municipalities, Katahdin Area Chamber of Commerce and the State of Maine Department of Conservation, has resulted in a finely manicured 16.5 mile multi-use recreation trail.

If trailering to the Katahdin Area to access the trail, please unload at the only designated trailhead, located at the Northern Timber Cruisers Clubhouse on Outer Bates Street just outside of town on the State Road to Baxter State Park. NO PARKING IS PERMISSIBLE ON THE GOLDEN ROAD, PER ORDER OF THE LANDOWNER – ACADIAN TIMBER.

Do you need gasoline? Are you hungry? Are you looking for a place to spend the night? Riders can access Millinocket’s Downtown Connector Trail at the trail junction between the Golden Rd. Crossing and trail mile marker # 2. OBEY ALL TRAFFIC LAWS. SPEED LIMIT 10 MPH. RIDE ON THE RIGHT.

Riders may encounter Mt. Bikers and other pedestrian traffic on the trail, so please keep your eyes pealed and look out for each other and don’t forget to Tread Lightly! Also, it is hunting season and Acadian Timber’s lands are open to hunting, so we encourage ALL trail users to please wear blaze orange while afield. Let’s be safe out there and enjoy the ride!
