Cooper Pond to Nahmakanta Stream Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The ponds, lakes, and streams of Maine are some of its most beautiful places, and the A.T. and several short side trails along this hike enable you to experience all three. This is some of the easiest walking in the entire One Hundred Mile Wilderness, with just minor ups and downs. The most extended climb is over Potaywadjo Ridge— and it is only a little more than 300 feet worth of elevation gain spread out over a mile. Possible campsites abound, but two of the most beautiful also happen to be sites designated by the Maine Appalachian Trail Club.
Amidst the shade of a red pine grove, Antlers Campsite is located upon a somewhat narrow strip of land jutting into Lower Jo-Mary Lake, providing a great place to sit and watch the golden glow of a sunrise or pink hue of a sunset spread across the lake surface. Nahmakanta Stream Campsite is situated close to the tumbling waters of its namesake."
