Maine’s 100-Mile Wilderness is the northernmost section of the Appalachian Trail and touted as one of the most rugged and remote areas in New England. The expansive region houses hundreds of ponds, lakes, trails and mountains to explore.


The Appalachian Trail

The 100-Mile Wilderness portion of the AT is arguably one of the most treacherous. Adventurous hikers will appreciate the wealth of climbs, switchbacks and rocky outcrops littered throughout.


Penobscot River

The Penobscot River is one of the largest rivers running through Maine and is popular among kayakers and whitewater enthusiasts. The rapids range from relatively calm Class IIs to anxiety-inducing Class Vs after a good rain. Kayaking the river also provides incredible views of Mt. Katahdin in the distance.


Mt. Katahdin

Mt Katahdin is the grandest mountain in the 100-Mile Wilderness and features a 12-hour hike to the top. The 4,000-foot gain in elevation from bottom to top makes it difficult for even the most experienced hikers, but the views from above are out of this world.


Allagash Lake

If you prefer something a little less strenuous, you can always spend a day floating or fishing on Allagash Lake. The lake is restricted to non-motorized watercraft, so be sure to bring along a canoe if you want to get on the water. The backdrop of Allagash Mountain is ruggedly beautiful all year long.
