Fall Foliage (aka Leaf Peeping)
Kingfield, Maine lies along a scenic byway perfect for viewing fall foliage in Maine. The Herbert Grand Hotel is centrally located to the Bigelow Mountain Range, Saddleback Mountain, Sugarloaf Mountain and Flagstaff Lake, all within a 75 mile loop of the hotel. For an extra fun time, take your motorcycle on a ride through the curvy mountain roads, stop for scenic views of the foliage and Flagstaff Lake and make a day of adventure in the Maine wilderness. The colors and views will leave you breathless.
Sugarloaf Mountain, located 15 miles from the Herbert Grand Hotel, features a mountainside 18 hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones. The fall foliage scenery from the mountainside golf course is absolutely stunning and worth the green fees even for scratch golfers and hacks. Another option is to hike a portion of the 80 miles of hiking trails offered by Maine Huts and Trails. Hiking is free and the trailhead is a quick 12 mile drive from the Herbert Grand Hotel.
Regardless of how you experience Maine's fall foliage, you will be glad that you took the trip. After the day, relax in our lobby with a glass of your favorite wine and make your Instagram followers and Facebook friends jealous by sharing the pictures of the fall foliage in Maine.
