When you think of Maine, do you think of the incredible fall colors and scenic lakes that dot the landscape? If you don’t, you should because this state is filled with some of the most beautiful landscapes in the entire country. It is truly one of the most fun states to explore in the country.
Exploring all of this beauty is part of the fun, and you can explore it all even easier when you venture out on the trails in a family-friendly SXS vehicle. A vehicle that is easy for the entire family to enjoy is the Honda Talon lineup of side-by-sides. These not only handle every type of trail you want to tackle, but they do so in all-day comfort with excellent handling to boot. So, let’s take a look at the trails that you can ride in this beautiful state, where life is better with Honda.
With lodging nearby and a large network of trails, Coburn Mountain ATV Riders has direct access to over 250 miles of SXS-friendly trails. This private riding area is filled with all types of riding, and it is advised that you contact them before you visit so you know the park is open for visitors (sometimes they close for mud season, etc…). The allotment of terrain means that you need a vehicle to handle all different types of terrain and trail conditions, and one of the best options is the Honda Talon 1000X with its 64” width and many standard protection features.
With a large focus on the camping aspect, Natures Wilderness Resort offers much more than just off-road riding trails. Campers can enjoy the 850 acres via hiking trails, swimming, fishing, archery, and plenty more outdoor activities. This isn’t to say that these activities take precedence over the off-road riding opportunities, which encompass a good majority of the property. The densely wooded trails are very scenic, and they offer a good challenge with different types of terrain. If you’d like a full-fledged, resort-style experience while riding in a vehicle like the Honda Talon 1000X, then this could very well be the place for you! Just be sure to make your reservations early.
