Mount Katahdin Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Steeped in Native American lore and legend, Mount Katahdin has inspired people for countless centuries. Rising like a large island above the flat valleys and lesser peaks surrounding it, the mountain’s headwalls and deep ravines are like no other.

The rugged beauty of Mount Katahdin has lured visitors, experienced and novice hikers alike, for over 200 years. While many visitors underestimate the physical and natural challenges the mountain presents, those who are prepared and successfully complete the journey will have memories that last a lifetime."
