Winter Moose Sightings in Greenville, Maine

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

Viewing Moose is the primary reason tourists come to the Moosehead area.  We often think that Moose viewing is good in the spring through fall, but look moose in winter, too.  Whether you are snowmobiling, snowshoeing or skiing across the beautiful North woods – look out for moose.  You may just have a pleasant surprise.

Moosehead Lake from a visitors seaplane ride looks like the head of a Moose.
