Land - Timber – Natural Features
Driving along the 4 +/- miles of road frontage you enjoy amazing views of the Union River Valley and the rolling hills of central Hancock County from the Whales Back. This is a glacially created esker rising 75+ feet above the river bed.
The forest land is a nice mix of timber types of deciduous trees such as maple, birch and poplar to coniferous trees like white pine, spruce, hemlock and cedar. The timber has been well managed for 20+ years by the current owners. A well-stocked forest is growing well and will provide ROI for you and your family for generations.
Along the Airline Road the property has several private road entrances. These roads access much of the interior of the land. The land has a rolling landscape with elevations from about 300 to nearly 800 feet above sea level. The soils of the site vary from sandy loam to rocky and boulder complex soils good for road building, forestry and wildlife uses. Wild blueberries will do well in many of these soil types.
River & Streams
The property has miles of frontage on the Middle Branch of the Union River, Seven Mile Brook, Beaver Brook and the outlet of Hazlam Pond. These streams have different water types from fast moving riffles to calm flat waters ideal for paddling.
These waters are accessible from the interior roads but hiking in to some secret pools, runs and ponds in the river will reward you with moose, beaver and otter sightings, plus remote fishing opportunities.
Hancock County is known for its hunting and fishing opportunities with good populations of moose, whitetail deer and black bear. Fly fishing for trout and salmon or spinning gear for smallmouth bass is also popular in this part of Mane. Nearby trail systems for ATV exploring and snowmobile riding are maintained by several local clubs. Paddling a canoe or kayak along the many miles of calm waters on the property will reward the photographer with scenic views and wildlife viewing.
Not only is the property easy to get to no matter what time of year you want to be here, Route 9 is open year-round for trucking forest products to market. This fact gives the property an advantage over others located on restricted access roads. Should you need a day away from the solitude this parcels provides, take a 45 minute drive into Bangor, 1 hour to Bar Harbor, or check out New Brunswick Canada just over 1 hour drive east.
