Coburn Mountain is the highest peak between the mountains of western Maine and Katahdin. But this remote mountain is rarely visited. The hike up the mountain is over varied and interesting terrain. The semi-open summit has a tower with a viewing platform that offers a 360-degree panorama. You can see all the way from New Hampshire’s White Mountains to Quebec and across Moosehead Lake to Katahdin. At 3,718 feet Coburn Mountain is the highest peak between western Maine and Katahdin. It’s the highest and eastern-most of a loose collection of remote mountains between the Canadian border and US 201 south of Jackman. These mountains are geologically complex; some are mined for tourmaline and their streams panned for gold. Coburn Mountain is named for the nineteenth-century timber baron and civil servant Abner Coburn.
