Saddleback Range Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Western Maine offers some excellent hiking opportunities, but the Saddleback Mountain Range heads the list, boasting a 3-mile above-tree-line section with outstanding views. Before you climb Saddleback Mountain, the Horn, and Saddleback Junior, you will pass Piazza Rock, an overhanging rock that juts out from a cliff. You will also walk near the shores of Ethel and Eddy Ponds. From Saddleback Junior’s treeless peak, there are views in all directions of the surrounding western Maine wilderness.

You will ford the cold, clear waters of Orbeton Stream before you climb Lone and Spaulding Mountains. Maine’s second highest peak—Sugarloaf Mountain—is located on a 0.6-mile optional side trail. The trail then descends sharply to the sometimes tricky ford of the South Branch of the Carrabassett River."
