  • Great place to spend an OFF the grid vacation. Good shoes and swimming shorts are a most, as there are many great mountain streams you hike past. Backpacker's paradise !! Be ready before you go
  • Love it. Everyone should visit Baxter State Park at least once a year if local or once in your lifetime if out of state/country. My favorite time for visiting is in the fall when the leaves are turning. There can be limited parking if you don't make reservations, and you may not be able to take the trail you intended, but you may find a new, beautiful sight/trail.
  • One of Americas great Wilderness Areas Mt Katahdin is the highest point in the state of Maine. It's a very rugged pristine area of the Maine North woods.Millinocket is about 20 miles south of the South Park entrance. It is the best place to stock up on supplies before you head into to the park. There are also several restaurants in town.
  • It's camping, hiking, canoeing/kayaking, seeing moose and other wildlife in Maine. Does it get any better... been there several times, great memories. Equip yourself, make some memories and enjoy!
  • If you're looking for a short and kid-friendly walk, try the Sandy Stream hike to Big Rock. Breathtaking views and a very easy hike, mostly fairly flat and lots on boardwalk. Not accessible for all hikers, but definitely more flat than rocky. A bit expensive for a casual hiker day pass out of state, but a season pass is worthwhile if you're there more than a couple times. And seriously, can't stress how beautiful it is.
