Most Remote Eastern State?

I would venture a guess at saying West VA

Depends on your definition of remote.

For most wilderness, Maine or New York.

I would have to say northern Maine.
A man needs to believe in something. I believe I'll go hiking.

Eastern or North-Eastern?

If y'all would consider Florida, I'd have to say somewhere in the Ten Thousand Islands region of the south west coast of Florida. A person can, and has, gotten lost back in that way for quite a stretch. No roads in, boats only, and the tides will determine which way a man can take a canoe sometimes. Skinny water.

Take a gander at a map of the area sometime. There's a whole lot of nothing between Everglades City and Flamingo.

They speak of my drinking, but never of my thirst...

If you're talking Northeast, it's Maine, hands down.

I would agree with Hawk on this- it depends on your definition of "remote".

While northern Maine is indeed "remote" from large population centers, it is sliced up by a multitude of logging roads. It is also remote in the sense that there are few year-round inhabitants; instead, many seasonal loggers and outdoor related occupations. But very little of that entire northern Maine area is "protected" from development, except for Baxter State Park and Allagash waterway. And the waterway is surrounded by logging roads and timber operations. No matter where you are up there, you are probably not too far from some logging operation.

In contrast, the ADKs have over 1 million acres protected as "wilderness", including large chunks like Silver Lake, Five Ponds, Siamese Ponds and many others. And many parts of the other 2 million acres of state protected land can be quite wild as well. In many areas of ADKs you CAN actually put yourself some considerable distance from man and his shenanigans.......
