motor mountain usa 2015 maine

What is the highest drivable mountain in Maine? It is a trail in the sheer wilderness of the state, and the #MMUSA crew reached an elevation of 2,438 feet above sea level after some searching. Nathan and Andre drive into the wild on a mission to find the high elevation trail. Will the boys get to taste Maine lobster? All this and more on this episode of the Motor Mountain USA.

Mount Katahdin is the tallest mountain in the state at 5,270 feet above the sea, but this north-eastern summit is not reachable by vehicle. The team was left to research the highest road, and the investigation led to the isolated trail you see here. This is a spot with absolutely no cellular reception for miles. The Jeep Wrangler’s GPS and the hand-held Garmin were the only glimmer of connection to the civilization on this run.


One of the best ways of experiencing America first hand is hitting the open road with the windows and top down in the 2015 Jeep Rubicon Wrangler Rubicon Hard Rock. The Motor Mountain USA (#MMUSA) team embarks upon an epic road trip by visiting the highest drivable roads of every state in the USA. Along the way Nathan, Roman, Andre and Emme will visit locales less traveled and uniquely American attractions that make the United States one of the world’s favorite tourist destinations.


The Maine belt buckle is hidden near the trail entrance. Watch the episode below to see the whole adventure and the precise location of the buckle.

Update: The Maine belt buckle has been found!
