      Just up the road after Moxie falls is a hidden hiking trail leading up to spectacular views of Moxie pound and surrounding mountains.I took my older sister up with her kids and we boondocked in Jackman with her camper and my tent.We went to Moxie falls and this hike.Had a great time.Tough little hike but well worth the effort.This was peak fall foliage here.Due to low rainfall,this years foliage wasn't as vibrant as it normally is.Still a pretty time of year though.
      This place is really happening,with an official population of 30 (yes thirty).
      If you didn't get the chance to get up here to vacationland this summer or fall,don't worry.We've got many great cabin and snowmobile rentals for some 'wicked good' winter fun,so wrap up the misses in a couple sleeping bags and a heavy snow suit,bring her up and put her on a snowmobile,a set of ski's or a pair of snowshoes and show your lady a good time in Maine.:)
