Aroostook (Southern Victoria)

The Village of Aroostook was once an important railway centre for the transportation of wood and potatoes. The old railway station, located where the Aroostook Valley and New Brunswick railroads cross, still stands strong and is recognized as 1 of the region’s important historical sites. The International Appalachian Trail, a route cherished by backpacking enthusiasts, also crosses into Aroostook territory. The trail links the 3 highest peaks of the Appalachian Mountain chain: Mont Jacques-Cartier in Quebec, Mount Carleton in New Brunswick and Mount Katahdin in the state of Maine. For an enjoyable hunting and fishing trip, visit Hanscome Outdoor Adventures to hunt partridge, black bear or deer. At the end of your day, cast a line and fish for trout, or perfect your shooting technique at one of the on-site clay pigeon shooting ranges. Golf enthusiasts will enjoy the Aroostook Valley Golf Club, an international course situated on the Canada/US border between New Brunswick and Maine. Play a round of 18 holes on Canadian soil, then browse the pro shop for golf products on the American side! The community of Aroostook is a wonderful place to stop and explore during your time on the River Valley Scenic Drive.
