The 100-Mile Wilderness encompasses the longest section of the Appalachian Trail (AT) that does not cross a paved road. This rugged legendary stretch of trail offers a challenging adventure deep in the Maine Woods. It is an endless parade of ever-changing scenery—rivers, streams, bogs, lakes, mountains, and more—and one of New England’s most challenging hikes.

Fininshed the hike in 8 days. Trail conditions are mostly rocks and roots. Mentally tough.
