Mahoosuc Range Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Mahoosuc Range is the most rugged section of A.T. in the state of Maine. A lot of elevation is gained and lost. The mountains in this chain are all more than 3,500 feet in elevation. Because you will be hiking along the crest of the ridge, water will be scarce, so be sure to carry plenty. The treadway is often wet and rough, and the trails cross many boggy areas, high on the ridge and in the sags.
Because these areas can get so muddy, many bog bridges have been installed to protect the delicate ecosystem. Please remain on these bridges. The most outstanding feature of the Mahoosuc Range is Mahoosuc Notch. This deep cleft between Mahoosuc Arm and Fulling Mill Mountain is filled with enormous boulders that have fallen from the sheer cliffs on either side of the notch."
