Bigelow Mountain, Bigelow Preserve

Best for elite hikers

Bigelow Mountain, Bigelow Preserve 

Head off the beaten path and experience one of Backpacker Magazine’s hardest day hikes in America with the Bigelow Mountain Traverse. The 16.3-mile traverse of the Bigelow Mountain Range via the Appalachian Trail offers some of the most incredible views of Maine’s western mountains and nearby Flagstaff Lake. 

 

Traveler Tip: If you’d like to turn the day hike into a weekend hike, there are plenty of tent platforms just below Avery Peak in Bigelow Col.
