Saddleback Mountain Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"One of Maine’s most striking Appalachian Trail (AT) sections, the march to the summit of Saddleback grows more alluring with each step. At first, fascinating geologic formations give way to wildlife-rich ponds. With the ponds’ reflections etched in your mind, you traverse a mile-long ridge of sparse, stunted trees; soft, windswept sedges; and ever-expanding, breathtaking mountain scenery. Culminating atop the wide-open 4116-foot summit, the journey takes in seemingly boundless views as invigorating as they are beautiful. A hike to Saddleback is physically demanding, but the dividends are far greater."
