A fantastic ridge hike along the Appalachian Trail within one of Maine’s most prominent and beautiful wilderness preserves. The circuit hike described here is rated “difficult” both for its overall length and steep climbing. For a less demanding outing, consider an out-and-back hike of the Horns Pond Trail, which has the easiest grade to the ridge and will reduce the overall trip length to 8.0 miles. Alternatively, you can extend the circuit hike into a two-day trip by camping at one of the tent sites or shelters along the route (see the AMC’s Maine Mountain Guide, 9th ed., for additional route and campsite information). A good portion of this hike is above treeline and subject to the full force of the elements. Be sure to plan accordingly and check the weather forecast before departing.
