Driving the Byway
U.S. 201 follows the old river trading paths of the Abenaki tribe, leading visitors back in time through towns where turn-of-the-century homes line the main thoroughfare. This byway passes through The Forks, where the Dead and Kennebec Rivers meet. This area is well-known for rafting expeditions down these swift-flowing rivers.
- The byway starts at the intersection of US 201 and ME-43 northwest of Skowhegan, ME.
- Travel north on US 201 through Solon, Bingham, Moscow, Caratunk, West Forks, Jackman and Moose River.
- The route ends at the US international border crossing at Sandy Bay.
