Hiking

Did north, south brother with my coe. It was challenging but great hike. The loop was about 10.5 miles long. A lot of rock scrambles and pretty wet. Coming down mt coe I would have never expected the flat rock face we had to come down. It was challenging but doable. I loved it.

HikingFeeGreat!

As has been said by the Park itself, this is not a road for great vistas of Katahdin. I tried anyway since I only had a few hours and I wanted to scout out Baxter for future visits. If you want to drive and do light hikes for pictures, maybe that's good? My regret was my plan was to do South to North. In the first few miles, you have quite a few ponds to hike to. I decided to keep driving to maximize time in the latter part of the drive. There isn't much besides hiking trails after those first few miles. For the best shots of Katahdin, that's going to be before the road thru Baxter. Personally, I'd prefer driving from the North gate to the South. Especially if you live south of the Park. Definitely do early October over late, there was very little color that I'm sure would've made the drive itself more charming. And you end with great views of Katahdin...

11-12 miles long. Not 9 anymore. Just did it. Farther than nine by a good amount. Not sure why it is labeled as less.

Have attempted this trail twice and have been turned back twice due to high winds and hail. Once you get above tree line to the rebar, there is still a long ways (2ish miles) to the summit. Keep that in mind before making a stupid decision up there - a lady got injured and became hypothermic on the tablelands and had to be rescued the day after we attempted.

We only made it up about 3/4 of the way up haunt but we decided to turn around because of the wind. There was fog at the top so the views weren’t too good either. The hike up was hard, you hike in a small stream most of the way until treeline (about 3,500 ft) took us about 4 or 5 hrs

Trail was really wet after the rain. It was very windy above the tree line so we turned back.

Since this is actually a road to get to camping/hiking areas, I tend to drive past my designated spot for the day just to see the other trails, streams, etc., to find new spots to try in the future. I especially love to drive through in the fall with the autumn foliage, especially as the sun sets. During the warmer weather, you can even pull over to stop at Ledge Falls to slide down the ledges.

HikingGreat!

Bring water!!! We didn’t know this beforehand, but there is NO potable water in the park. Bring a way to treat park water or load up in town before hand. Amazing trail. Spent the night prior at Abol Campground. Woke up at 4:30 am, drove to Roaring Brook trailhead, and started on the trail at 6:15 am. Saddle is a totally doable trail up. Once you reach the ridge (top of Saddle) it can be extremely windy. We peaked at 10:10 am. Took our time getting back down, getting to the car again at 3:15pm after a long break at Chinney Pond to enjoy the views and eat some lunch.

Fun trail. A little flooded when we went a few days ago. Started snowing halfway up until we got to chimney pond but was part of the experience! Beautiful scenery.

Did not finish due to conditions past tree line, which was a bummer. Will definitely be back to complete this.

Great hike. Beautiful leaves. The lake halfway up is picturesque. Rime ice above the treeline. Cold and windy especially with wet feet. Make sure you know the last mile is literally in a stream the whole way!

This is a trail that is doable for hikers of all ages and skill levels. Do this in early October, and the foliage will be stunning. There is room for ample rock hopping and several great viewpoint along the way before you reach the final pond.

This was a phenomenal trail that provides a nice challenge of elevation gain and rock scrambling. Chimney Pond is a tremendous trail that offers great views of Katahdin, but the real fun and scrambling begins on Saddle. This is doable for any determined hiker. CHECK THE WEATHER at Chimney Pond. We decided to go up, and completed it in a snow storm at the top. Caution is key.

Great hike. lots of fun boulders to climb over. Windy and cold day added to the excitement and challenge. had lots of people turn around just past the tree line due to 30-45 mph wind gusts. Clocked at around 10 miles. total time 8hrs.
