A paddle and hiking adventure to a precipitous peninsula overlooking the state’s largest lake. At 34 miles long, and 117 miles square, Moosehead is Maine’s largest lake and the largest body of water within one state east of the Mississippi River. The region is often referred to as the “Gateway to the Great North Woods,” and is, indeed, one of northern Maine’s most spectacular settings. Outside of chartering a floatplane, there is perhaps no better way to take in this vast, expansive country than from atop the precipitous cliffs of magnificent Mount Kineo. True to any worthy outdoor experience, simply getting to Kineo can be a challenge in itself. The mountain rises dramatically from the middle of Moosehead Lake at the western tip of a peninsula jutting from the eastern shore. The only way to reach it is by water.
