View Full Version : Maine's 100 mile wilderness

One of the best hikes for really getting away from it all is in the 100 mile wilderness in Maine. It is a 100 mile section of the AT that does not cross a paved or public road for 100 miles. I have hiked several miles in but have not done the whole thing. If you are looking for a solitary wilderness experience this is one of the good ones.

This sounds fantastic. I'm going to do some internet work on the trail. Where's the "put in"?

It is in Monson, Maine on route 6. The AT crosses route 6 a few miles after Monson and they keep the side of the road mowed at the crossing point so you can park.
It can be located in De Lormes Maine atlas and gazetteer on grid 31.
Here is a link from the Appalchian Mountain Club.

I have hiked it twice and although the climbs are not bad, most of board walks are falling apart and slippery. Plenty of muddy sectons plus exposed and slippery tree roots. One of the poorer maintained sections of the AT. However, water sources are excellent. Not totally isolated as you can stop off at Whitehouse Landing a few days in NOBO.

That is one of the reasons I like it. It is more of a challenge.
