Pat Bayle State Forest
•Many adventurous outdoor opportunities are available to visitors in the summer. You can hike Eagle Mountain (the state's highest point at 2,301 feet), hike other designated trails along the byway, bike the trails, or canoe down the border lakes through the woods.
• Winter provides chances to see more wildlife, such as deer and moose that frequent the byway, and several different species of birds. Other winter activities in the area include snowmobiling, snowshoeing, dogsledding, and ice-fishing.
• If relaxation is what you are looking for, you can look for birds and other wildlife, fish the many surrounding lakes, enjoy camping at Twin Lakes Campground, or just appreciate nature by driving along the byway.
• There is something for everyone to enjoy. It's really worth the trip.
