Bigelow Range creases the landscape of western Maine, a long, rocky ridge dotted with peaks and far-reaching views. At lower elevations, enriched soils create habitat for abundant sugar maples. In fall, they blaze in leaf-peeping glory. Come experience the full spectrum of 3,000 feet of elevation change, climbing from the mountain’s base to its dramatic highpoint atop 4,145-foot West Peak.
