KATAHDIN WOODS AND WATERS NATIONAL MONUMENT ‘PARK LOOP ROAD’ NOW CLOSED FOR THE YEAR.

With ponds and soil freezing over now in northern Maine – as well as bouts of snow – the National Park Service has seasonally closed the beautiful ‘Park Loop Road’ in the southern portion of America’s new KWWNM in the Katahdin Valley near Patten and Shin Pond.
One may still access the northern portions of KWWNM – those roads are still open for the time being.
For planning purposes, KWWNM is a little over a 3 hour drive north of Portland, Maine. Exit I-95 at Medway and head up the highway that goes through Grindstone.
