Gulf Hagas

Gulf Hagas Professional Review and Guide

"The deep and narrow slate cliffs of Gulf Hagas are dramatic in winter. Ice forms on the walls, creating avenues of vertical blue. Snow covers the pine forest at the top of the canyon, and the walls eventually narrow to create falls, polls, and chutes. No wonder Gulf Hagas is called the “Grand Canyon of Maine.”

The craggy gulf is along the West Branch of the Pleasant River. During a 4.0-mile run, the river drops 400 feet. Just off the Appalachian Trail, Gulf Hagas was once a spot for logging. Huge trees would be transported down the river, though one might wonder how the timber was fed through where the cannon narrows. Surface quality: Unpacked."
