Patten is a small village located in Penobscot County at the north entrance to Baxter State Park. Few places in Maine are as remote or as beautiful and this part of the state. Baxter State Park has over 204,000 acres of wilderness that surrounds Mt. Katahdin, which is Maine's highest mountain (5,267 feet.) The park also has 180 miles of trails, including the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail, and is popular with hikers and mountain climbers, especially in summer. There are many lakes and rivers near Patten, so visitors have their choice of fishing, hunting, swimming, whitewater rafting, canoeing, ice fishing, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing in the wintertime. Photographers love the area around Patten for the spectacular fall foliage and breathtaking winter scenes. This is prime moose country, and these fascinating creatures can often be seen grazing around the rivers and streams at dusk. Another point of interest in Patten is the Lumberman's Museum, which depicts the history of logging in this area, including models, dioramas and equipment.

Patten Weather & Climate

Maine's Northeast climate is four seasons and highly changeable -- it can go from sunny to stormy in short order. Summers in the Katahdin Region, near the Canadian border, are cool, with highs in the 70s or sometimes reaching the low 80s. Interior areas experience a greater range of temperatures in the summer, with some nights in northern areas near freezing. Winters in Maine are cold and sometimes even frigid. January temperatures range from 11 to 31 F along the coast and 1 to 19 F inland. The snow can be lovely, and if you aren't opposed to cold weather, wintertime is a great time to visit Maine. Continuous snow is generally on the ground from December through February and sometimes into March. Daytime highs gradually increase March through May. In September, the spectacular colors of fall blaze and sunny days and cool nights characterize this favorite season of many in Maine.
