The centerpiece of a 36,000-acre preserve permanently protected by Maine voters in 1976, Bigelow Mountain’s scenic ridgeline is an assortment of breathtaking views, idyllic ponds, and abundant wildlife. Once proposed as another big ski area in northern New England, Bigelow Mountain is now a popular destination for hikers and backpackers. Managed by the state for multi-use, including timber management, the Bigelow Preserve offers a great variety of options. This full-day or two-day loop traverses the ridge’s most popular locations, but visits quieter locations as well.
