Mount  Katahdin

Mount Katahdin, Baxter State Park

Looming a mile above the northern Maine wilderness, Mount Katahdin (meaning "greatest mountain") stands as a majestic monument to man and nature. Mount  Katahdin

Baxter State Park protects the land because of the foresight and generosity of Percival Baxter. The Katahdin area is a spectacular landform of mountains, river valleys, swamps, meadows, sparkling lakes, forests, boulders, cliffs, serrated ridges, and deep glacial circus.

An expansive area of alpine flowers and tundra above timberline testifies to the harsh weather of this region, yet more than 100 species of birds and dozens of mammal species, including black bear and moose inhabit the forest.Mount  Katahdin

Since the first recorded ascent in 1804 thousands have been attracted to the highest mountain in Maine. Whether for scientific study or adventure one will find challenge on its lofty heights.
