Monhegan Island Professional Review and Guide
"A hike along the headlands of one of Maine's Atlantic islands. In spring, birders flock to Monhegan to witness the spring migration, when up to 100 different species can be seen in a day. The headlands on the island's north and east shores rise as high as 160 feet. Although camping is not allowed, three seasonal inns on Monhegan take guests by reservation.
The Cathedral Woods Trail leaves the main road and enters a virgin forest, something uncommon in the east. As the trail bears northwest, spruce and fir trees create shade, even on a sunny day. Cathedral Woods is a unique natural area, with tall spruces, ferns, wildflowers, and lots of moss-covered boulders. It’s truly a place to seek peace."
