3 NIGHT CHIMNEY POND BACKPACKING TRIP
The ultimate Baxter Park trip, which includes a summit climb of Katahdin! This is a 3 night backpacking trip to one of the most striking viewpoints Maine. A trip that offers the hiker many opportunities for exploration and challenge. Toughest reservations to get in the state!
3 or 4 NIGHT RUSSELL POND/WASSATAQUOIK LAKE BACKPACKING TRIP
Three nights in Baxter Park's most remote campground, a 7.6 mile hike into the interior of the park. A fantastic area for viewing moose & fly fishing for brook trout!
4 NIGHT FREEZEOUT TRAIL BACKPACKING TRIP
An easy to moderate loop trial hike along several bodies of water in the most northern end of Baxter Park. A good portion of the trail follows old logging tote roads. It would be difficult to find more solitude anywhere else in Baxter park.
