Greenville is a frontier town, the last chunk of civilization before entering Maine’s northern woods. Anchoring the southeast corner of Moosehead Lake, Maine’s largest body of freshwater, and with endless miles of backcountry hiking and remote-waterway paddling close at hand, the town’s a favorite for outdoor enthusiasts. It’s also primo moose territory. While the odds are decent should you prefer to seek them out yourself and hit some of the easy-to-access boggy sites publicized by the local chamber, they increase if you go with a licensed Maine Guide, who will not only take you via four-wheel vehicle or canoe to see the gangly critters in their habitat, but also supply info and trivia.
