Baring
Baring

Named for Alexander Baring, an English Ambassador, who worked to settle the question of the northeastern boundary of Maine in 1842 with Daniel Webster. This town lies at the end of Route Nine, also known as "The Airline," which provides a link to the interstate and the major center of Bangor. 

Baring lies along the international boundary, formed by the St. Croix River. Three international border crossings and many services are located in nearby Calais.

If you enjoy water, nature, hiking, and birdwatching, then be sure to visit the Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge. This fantastic US wilderness refuge can be accessed from a number of towns in Washington County. The head office for the refuge is located in Baring, and the Baring Division boasts an excellent network of trails and scenic outlooks for four season enjoyment. 

Registered Maine Guides can help you determine the best spots for enjoying nature in the area.
