Mount Carleton is the highest peak in the Maritime provinces, and, on a clear day, the views from there are excellent. When the peak and the firetower are blanketed by fog, they appear eerie. Near the “Headwaters” wilderness campground there are many signs of moose; this is their winter resting place. The trail first follows an old woods road through mixed woods. It is very rocky in parts and ascends gently. A scenic mossy creek at the last part of the loop allows for good resting places. The area also boasts a very large number of fiddleheads. Trail Condition: rocky, boulders near the top.

Mount Sagamook is between a 3 and 4 hour hike. You start climbing immediately and continue for about an hour before reaching the top and taking in the spectacular mountain top views. After having a quick snack, you start the long journey down, completing the loop in about 4 hours with the occasional break and enjoying the breathtaking views...
