Moosehead Lake includes Sugar and Farm Islands and most of the shore in Days Academy and Kineo Townships. There are numerous boat access campsites on the shore. Hiking trails provide visitors access to the spectacular views from the summit of Mount Kineo. Boats may be launched at several locations on the lake including Lily Bay State Park and Rockwood.
One of the most difficult and terrifying trails I've ever hiked, but also one of the most rewarding! Boulder scrambling, handrails, precipitous drops, tableland, and gorgeous views from the top.
Very sore legs at the bottom. A demanding 10 mile round trip.
The Hunt trail is apart of the AT, wicked cool hiking along others who are completing the long journey. I loved the challenge of rock climbing up and down this trail. It gives nice breaks after many steep parts. They waterfall was also very enjoyable to see twice. Katahdin filled me with emotion and pride.
This trail and mountain will test you both physically and mentally. You will have nice views up to the sub-alpine. Then you will boulder up the ridge where you'll have breathtaking views on the way to the tablelands. When I arrived at the tablelands, for me, it was a bit emotional because the scenery was just so beautiful. From here you still have about 1.5 mi to the summit. It is fairly flat most of the way. This trail is tougher than Tuckerman Ravine. Helpful Hint: You may want to make a reservation at Katahdin Stream Campground (bring a water purifier).
