Mount Katahdin Professional Review and Guide

"The towering conclusion to the 2174-mile Appalachian Trail (AT), Mount Katahdin stands above Maine amid a sea of lakes, forests, rivers, and rolling hillsides. Rugged, rocky, and raw, the massive peak leaves nearby summits in its shadow, while intoxicatingly luring countless visitors to its dizzying heights. A hike to Katahdin’s summit can instill memories to last a lifetime; however, the mountain should be approached with respect. Underestimating the physical and natural challenges presented can result in serious injury or worse. Katahdin is arguably the most strenuous hike in New England, and its weather is unforgiving. Approach the hike with ample preparation and caution, and the reward will be strikingly beautiful vistas, intriguing natural features, and a tremendous sense of accomplishment."
