The Remote Hike To The Woods In Maine Winds Through The Allagash Wilderness Waterway

One of the things we love the most about being in Maine is getting outside and enjoying all the land around us. We’ve got the rocky coast for those who can’t get enough of the salty air. And for those who love the feeling of tall trees surrounding them, we’ve got plenty of inland forest to ease the mind. If you typically gravitate to one or the other, consider switching things up to try something new. This hike, located off-the-beaten path for a lot of people in Maine is a great way to try something new.

The Allagash Mountain Trail is remote, but worth the journey. It’s located within the North Maine Woods recreational system which means you’ll need to go through a checkpoint and pay a day use or camping fee. You can learn more about how to find it and see a map of the route by visiting Maine Trail Finder or Remember that getting to this trailhead requires a paddling trip, so this is truly best for the adventurous.

And while you’re adventuring in the more rural parts of the state, we recommend you stick around and spend some more time in the area. Here are 14 destinations way up north that are so worth the drive!
