"The most spectacular high-elevation hike in Maine outside of Baxter State Park, the loop over the Bigelow Range is a day-long adventure high above the sprawling expanse of Flagstaff Lake. Once slated to be the next big ski area in New England, Bigelow Mountain and 36,000 acres of surrounding landscapes were permanently protected when Maine voters went to the polls in 1976 and narrowly approved a measure to add the area to the state’s public reserved lands. Thanks to their foresight, today the Bigelow Mountain Preserve is a hiker’s paradise of steep slopes, bountiful wildlife, high-elevation alpine meadows, long, sweeping ridge lines, secluded mountain ponds, maturing actively managed forests, and scenic backcountry campsites."
