Hello Thy Fellow Adventure'rs,

I am looking at running a backpacking trip to Maine and was wondering if anyone had any solid loops/trails in mind. I am not familiar with the state of Maine since I am a born and bred Wisco man, but I am interested in getting to know Maine a little more intimately. I would like to do a coastal or inland loop/trail that could span any number of miles. I'm not too picky. If anyone knows of any higher altitude routes, that would be swell as well!

If anyone could shed a little light on my quest, it would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers Y'ALL!

Katahdin knife edge is fantastic. Definitely need a head for heights and comfortable scrambling skills. There are several circuits you can do on that mountain to make several days of it. Accomodation at the shelters / lean-to's needs to be booked well in advance if you want to stay overnight. Not sure when you are Also being in northern Maine by October there is a good chance of snow, and for the winter months the access road is closed and the rangers will check you have proper gear.

Check out the Grafton Loop Trail. Its an awsome ~40mile loop in Maine. Its perfect for a couple days out on the trail.
