The three-day trip up Katahdin is a nice way to break up the strenuous trip up Katahdin into three days. We would depart Togue Pond Gate at Baxter State Park by ten o’clock and hike three miles from Roaring Brook with packed food and gear to Chimney Pond. Your guide will prepare tasty food before you retire in this amazing spot which you will have time to explore. We will camp in a lean-to, bunk house, or tent site for the night. Next morning hike to the peak of Mount Katahdin via the Cathedral, or Saddle trail. If there is enough time, interest, and the weather cooperates, we can hike part of the Knife’s Edge, or over to Hamlin Peak returning that evening to Chimney Pond for more delicious guide-cooked food. After a good night’s sleep, we will pack out our gear from Chimney Pond to Roaring Brook, returning in our cars from whence we came!
NOTES: As Baxter State Park is very popular, reservations need to be made well in advance, and alternative itineraries may be required. Please note that the required equipment list is NOT optional and we reserve the right to cancel without refund for adventurers who show up not fully prepared for the trip. If you need gear that is on the required list please let me know before departure. This is a strenuous trip and not suitable for most young people under the age of 16. Other travel arrangements can be made. Prices are per person, two person minimum.
