Jackman is situated along the Old Canada Road Scenic Byway just before the U.S./Quebec border. It is a major depot if you'd like to travel Maine’s network of interconnected snowmobiling trails. You can also access more than 60 lakes, ponds and streams from Jackman to go canoeing, kayaking or fishing. Remote hunting and fishing camps, many dating back to the late 19th century, are also located around this area. The season kicks off with the annual smelt run that occurs after ice-out (usually in April) and you can fish for trout, landlocked salmon or togue through September. You can also take the Moose River Bow Trip, a 34-mile loop that includes a few light rapids. You can camp at one of the remote sites found along the river. At Attean View Rest Area, just south of Jackman, you can stop for a view of Attean Lake and the network of ponds connected by the Moose River, with the western mountains as the backdrop.
