Hiking the Appalachian Trail's 100 Mile Wilderness Trail.
Start here or end here at Abol Bridge Campground and Store. The 100 Mile Wilderness is the northernmost section of the 2179 mile long Appalachian Trail which runs from Monson to Abol bridge at Mt. Katahdin's base in Maine. The 100 Mile Wilderness is considered by many to be the most remote and inaccessible section of the entire Appalachian Trail. While the 100 Mile Wilderness is not a “true” wilderness, the character of the land and rugged terrain accompanied by pristine lakes and ponds and the far reaching and unspoiled views encompass the emotional feelings of being isolated from the hustle and bustle of the civilized world. The 100 Mile Wilderness is a narrow trail corridor, roughly 10 feet wide, which passes through a working forest. Bordered on both sides of the Trail by large, private landowners and State lands, the 100 Mile Wilderness is part of the National Park system and maintained by volunteers of the Maine Appalachian Trail Club. This is typically a 10 day hike with no re-supply or services in between.
