this was the most intense hike I have ever experienced couldn't have been better with Mark, Greg, and Jeff.
Great views, and because it's part of the AT you get to see hikers finishing it up. Have to climb up some boulders and use rails, which makes it more exciting.
Grate time don't recommend taking your 3 year old
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.
This was a beautiful way up Mt. Katahdin, but since I had expected to climb Chimney/Saddle, I found this one much more challenging than I'd planned. Our group actually climbed down the other side (Chimney/Saddle) and had our ride meet us there.
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).
Demanding hike with views and scenery that are hard to beat.
