Its a 15 mile ride through the woods from Allagash to the Deboullie Public Reserved Land. This state owned parcel of land contains over 21,000 acres and 17 ponds which are connected by over 12 miles of maintained hiking trails. The hike to the old fire tower on Deboullie Mountain offers a specatular view of northern Maine. The area is well known for its granite rock slides which contain ice year round. This frozen water is a remant of the glaciers that covered this part of the country over 12,000 years ago. There are many campsites and boat launches within the Deboullie area and the lakes here contain lake trout, salmon, and blueback trout (landlocked artic charr).
North Maine Woods gate fees apply to begin your trip but the reserve land is free to the public.
