The northeast is a beautiful part of the United States and there are loads of fun things to do in this part of the world. America may be lacking in historical architecture but one thing it boasts is the beauty of its land.
We enjoy the outdoors in different ways. Many enjoy playing sports. Others like to camp or go rafting. Our favorite things are hiking and mountain climbing. But what we all share in common is our love of the outdoors.
Maine offers incredible hiking locations - both for beginners and for those seeking an intense hiking experience. There are loads of hiking trails in this expansive state.
Here are our top 3 favorites!
- Cadillac Mountain
This is the tallest mountain in Acadia National Park and offers one of the best views for watching the sunrise. Hikers can enjoy views of both the Atlantic Ocean as well as Bar Harbor. Hiking Cadillac Mountain is both a unique and invigorating experience.
- Mt Katahdin
This is Maine’s tallest mountain and sits in the middle of the vast forests of Baxter State Park. The Knife's Edge is a popular trail with a tight-rope along a high ridge. Several trails meet here at the summit.
- Mount Battie
One of the most photographed places in the State of Maine, this hike just outside of Camden Hills State Park offers incredible views. Hikers catch a glimpse of Camden, the Atlantic Ocean, and the islands just off the shoreline. It is a tough hike but definitely worth it.
