Mahoosuc Notch Professional Review and Guide

"The Mahoosuc Range straddles the Maine–New Hampshire border
northeast of the White Mountains. Even by New England standards, these mountains are remarkable for their ruggedness.

Mahoosuc Notch slices through the heart of the range, a deep cleft filled with enormous boulders and traversed by the Appalachian Trail (AT). It is one of the most challenging sections of trail in New England and readily earns its moniker as the AT’s Hardest Mile."

"Many Appalachian Trail (AT) thru-hikers consider the 27-mile traverse of the Mahoosuc Range to be the most difficult section of the more than 2000-mile journey from Springer Mountain to Mount Katahdin. While steep, rocky, and very demanding, the Mahoosuc mountains are more noteworthy for their serenity, commanding vistas, and pristine waters. This 11-mile loop showcases the best of what this rugged mountain ridge has to offer, including a relentless journey through the labyrinth of caves and boulders of Mahoosuc Notch."
