The B52 crash site is worth the trip out to see. Its a bit difficult to find but worth it. We made serveral wrong turns trying to get there but we were in the woods, it was beautiful so we weren't really lost, we were "out exploring" until we found the site. It's a very nice memorial to those who... More

It was raining a lot during our visit to Moosehead this year so we did a lot of site seeing while we were there. The B52 crash site is about 10 miles up Scammon Rd. it's a well maintained dirt road they we went up in my Subaru Legacy without any issues but we took it slow. A short five... More

This Memorial site is not to be missed. It's a long drive in on gravel roads that can be rough but take your time and watch for the signs to keep you on the right road. The site itself feels both spiritual and sacred. Never have I been anywhere like it.

We have taken several folks from our Moosehead Chalet camp to this solemn site up on Elephant Mountain off Lily Bay rd, Greenville, Maine. Everyone has felt the dedication and seen the sacrifice of our military.

We followed our inn keepers directions and drove up towards Elephant Mountain and the B52 Bomber crash site in the woods. We had no idea what to expect as we drew nearer to the right turn off the highway where we saw the sign with an airplane on it and turned onto the gravel track and continued following these signs...

Elephant mountain holds the preserved wreckage in the woods of a B52 bomber that crashed in January 1963. It is worth the short drive and hike to visit. Beautiful in the Fall.

We drove up the mountain to the crash site. The gravel roads are rough, though not too bad till the last mile or so. Could have used better signage. It's easy to get lost with all the dirt roads and ATV trails up there. The crash site is an easy walk from the parking lot. Definitely worth the visit especially... More

We visited the B52 crash site Colubus Day weekend. We were not sure what to expect but told by other visitors and locals it was a must see. It is easy to get to, just a 7 mile drive down a former logging road. It is cleary marked with yellow diamond shaped signs, there is a small pull off or... More
