They are called Micromobile as well as GMRS https://midlandusa.c...lo-micromobile/
The North Maine Woods is unique ... a privately owned area of a State that at one point was nearly 1/2 the land area. Now it is down to 25% or so. Development is always circling like carrion seekers... along the borders. Lake front is the thing.... A few conservationists, like the owner of Burt's Bee products have tried to out bid these developers and buy large swaths that become available. Trying to keep it wild and not filled with McMansions. Win some and lose some. As it has gotten more discovered... well you know the story.
Know these rules https://www.northmai...mation.htmlhard copy mat
Also ... offline maps essential (best we have found is Maps.me)
Never go in without a hardcopy map Delorme is the best Maine Atlas. Log roads come and go yearly.
Be sure to have a way to get yourself out of a pickle.... there is no road rescue service.
Bring extra fuel. Log roads look like 30 miles on a map might be 60 miles due to many things.... like having to backtrack.
As to be expected the southern boundary (the Golden Road area) is highly used.
Don't forget Mt Katadin https://baxterstatepark.org
They have very strict rules there too (no dogs... not even keep in camper)
I have been roaming around up there since 1975 and feel lucky that I had the chance.
