This hike is more challenging that the usual up and down to the summit!
Come for an exhilarating hike at a lower elevation in southern Maine that affords incredible 360 degree views with autumn foliage! On a clear day we can see white capped Mt. Washington on one side and the ocean on the other. Simply amazing! We will explore some of the extensive trails at Mt Agamenticus [691’] that includes three prominent hills. We will hike approximately 6-7 miles.
The trail network consists of rolling terrain with some steep sections with uneven footing. It is expected that participants have been doing some recent hiking and are able to do this mileage. Don't forget to bring wind/rain shell, insulated layers, hat, gloves, water, lunch, snacks, etc. along with whatever you typically have for a hiking excursion in the shoulder season. We’ll have lunch on top of one the hills.
