If you have only one map of Maine's 100-Mile Wilderness, make this it. Brand new from AMC, this waterproof, tearproof map offers a comprehensive view of the 100-Mile Wilderness/Moosehead Lake region and Baxter State Park, with detailed insets spotlighting Gulf Hagas, Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument, Katahdin itself and surrounding shelters, AMC's Maine Woods land, Gorman Chairback Lodge and Cabins, Little Lyford Lodge and Cabins, and the newly reopened Medawisla Lodge and Cabins, as well as the maintained trail networks linking these destinations―identified for skiing, biking, hiking, and multi-use.
You'll find recommended hikes for all ability levels, as well as information on safety, camping, backcountry shelters, and resources for more information on the Maine Woods Initiative. Based on highly accurate trail data developed, GPS-rendered, and field-tested by AMC, the map also includes trail-segment mileage and identifies peaks, wilderness areas, and points of interest.
This map and guide is a companion to Maine Mountain Guide, Eleventh Edition, by Carey Kish, which provides turn-by-turn trail descriptions, in-text and pull-out maps, directions for reaching trailheads, and estimated time, elevation gain, and difficulty levels for all of the hikes featured in this map.
