"Coburn Mountain is the highest peak between the high mountains of western Maine and Katahdin. But this remote mountain is rarely visited. The hike up the mountain is steep, but passes over varied and interesting terrain. The semi-open summit has a tower with a viewing platform that offers a 360-degree panorama. You can see all the way from New Hampshire’s White Mountains to Quebec and across Moosehead Lake to Katahdin. The drive to the trailhead on US 201 is one of the moosiest stretches of road in Maine."

It’s the highest and eastern-most of a loose collection of remote mountains between the Canadian border and US 201 south of Jackman. These mountains are geologically complex; some are mined for tourmaline and their streams panned for gold. Coburn Mountain is named for the nineteenth-century timber baron and civil servant Abner Coburn." Read more
