Laura and I traveled to Baxter State Park to hike KATAHDIN again. Katahdin is the highest mountain in Maine and the northern boundary of the Appalachian Trail. Laura and I really enjoy this mountain as it is only a 6 hour drive from our Halifax, Nova Scotia home. It is just as convenient as some of the Northerly Cape Breton adventures we have hiked. Here are some photos from our hike. Check out my previous Blog posts for more detailed information on the hiking Katahdin. We spent the week staying at Camp Cozy which is a bunkhouse located in Nesowadnehunk Campground. Nesowadnehunk is the most remote of the Park’s roadside campgrounds and provides easy access to Ledge Falls, a popular swimming spot during hot summer weather.
On this trip we hiked the Knife’s Edge trail on two separate occasions. We first hiked the Hunt Trail from Katadhin Stream travelling 10.4 miles return trip. The next day we did Hamlin Ridge Trail to Knife Edge and down Helon Taylor covering 11.1 miles. Great challenging hikes, both mentally and physically!
