An exceptional rim hike along Maine’s “Grand Canyon” with side trips to its numerous waterfalls, cascades, chutes, and pools. Deep within the 100-Mile Wilderness, the West Branch of the Pleasant River cuts through a spectacular gorge, known as Gulf Hagas. For more than 2 miles, the river tumbles and churns through the slate canyon forming an attractive series of waterfalls, pools, and chutes. The Gulf is so extraordinary, the National Park Service pronounced it a Registered Natural Landmark in 1968 for its “exceptional value in illustrating the natural history of the United States.” This trip travels the rim of the canyon, which offers outstanding views from atop its sheer cliffs and access to many of the Gulf’s scenic wonders.
