Either the first or the last––2,930th––mile of U.S. Route 1 begins right next to the International Bridge across the St. John River to New Brunswick. A great little park!

Nice information. Sweet area for a quick break and a short stretch of the legs. Be sure to climb the stairs behind. Canada is just feet away across the St. John River and the U. S. Border is literally right there.

If you're in Fort Kent it's a quick visit to this sight. You get a nice view of the St. John River and the boarder crossing. Yet I wouldn't go out of my way to visit.

Had been to Key West several years ago and saw the end of US 1. Was visiting the Bar Harbor area so it was only natural to take the day ride to Fort Kent to see America's First Mile! The trip was worth it. Fort...More

The Monument would be but the steps to the berm might not be cleared of snow (if there is any!). It's easy access from the road!
