This trail leads to the open summit of 2850-foot Caribou Mountain in the Evans Notch region, straddling the Maine-New Hampshire border. It’s a long, steady climb, with nearly 2000-foot elevation gain. But the hike through the dense pine forests of the Caribou-Speckled Mountain Wilderness and the sweeping views from the top of Mount Caribou make the effort worthwhile. While popular with summer hikers, few complete the snowshoe hike to the top, but you’re likely to find the tracks of some hardy locals who appreciate the exercise and the scenery.
