Backpacking or Base Camp: Baxter State Park

Baxter State Park was the dream of Governor Percival P. Baxter who made it his life’s work to create and protect some of the most beautiful and rugged land in Maine. The Baxter Region offers a variety of hiking and backpacking opportunities. From the storied 100 Mile Wilderness to the Northern Terminus of the Appalachian Trail located on Mt. Katahdin this region is a destination for hikers and backpackers. The northern end of the park is home of the twelve mile Traveler Loop Trail. It crosses three mountain peaks with views of Katahdin, South Branch Pond and Trout Brook.
