How To Hike Mt. Katahdin

Looming above Baxter State Park, Mount Katahdin is Maine’s tallest peak and the last leg of the Appalachian Trail. For a story in our July issue, videographer and writer Chase Bartee and photographer Aimee Bartee joined AT thru-hikers on the final stretch of their 2,200-mile trek from Georgia to Maine, leaving from Katahdin Stream Campground and climbing to the mountain’s 5,269-foot summit. To hike Katahdin, it’s recommended that you reserve a parking spot through Baxter State Park’s website or, better yet, camp at the park the night before. Read more about Chase and Aimee’s trek here.
