Katahdin   Sucess!

This was a fun, but challenging hike for me. Here is a link to the trails that I took. This was SHP #11 for me.

Took Roaring brook to dudley to baxters summit and back. Wasn't to impressed with the famous knife edge trail...hardly any exsposure to speak of.

solo  Sucess!

Cathedral-Knife Edge-Helon Taylor, solo, just under 5 hours car-to-car. Blue-bird skies, almost no wind. Minimal bugs, too. Still a couple of snow patches left in South Basin. All in all a good day - too bad the drive is so damn long...

Thru hike perfect ending  Sucess!

via an AT thru-hike. snow flurries and no visibility on summit day but nonetheless a great cap to an awesome experience. at age 19, the months alone in my head on the trail were the best thing that ever happened to me...

Abol Slide scramble  Sucess!

Climbed via the Abol Slide Trail. Met many interesting people including a man who had summited Katahdin for the 46th time. 8 hours round trip including a leisure lunch at the summit. A clear day with great views. The black flies were brutal. State HP #47.

1st Highpoint  Sucess!

I climbed this mountain well before even thinking about climbing all 50 state highpoints which was not started until 9 years after this state. From what I can remember of this summit, it was extremely difficult but it started my love affair with hiking. Chimney pond was beautiful!!

Knife Edge  Sucess!

Maybe the best mountain in the East if you want some scrambling.

Re: On Our First Anniversary

This seems to contradict everything I was told before my hike. How did you find coming down Cathedral?

Into the mist..  Sucess!

Up Cathedral, Cross the Knife Edge, down Helen Taylor. Beautiful and trying hike that I'll never forget.

3rd times the charm  Sucess!

We tried to do this trip the last 2 winters, and only now were we able to summit. Well worth the wait. One of the better North Eastern peaks. Massive, impressive, big, and intimidating. Great trip though. We squeezed in between 2 big snow systems, and were able to be the only people on the mountain that week. We went up the Cathedral trail, and back the same route. Amazing. What a good trip!

Hunt Trail  Sucess!

Nice hike with several AT completers this day. Saw a little bear on the summit plateau.

Katahdin in September  Sucess!

Up Dudley, over the Knife Edge and down the Saddle, from Chimney Pond. 4.5 hours for this, not counting the trip back down to the trailhead. Knife Edge was in the clouds the whole time, which probably made the hike go faster as there were no pictures to take. It did clear out towards the end, though, with some nice views of the mountain cloaked in yellow from the fall birches.

Summit!  Sucess!

Climbed up Cathedral to the summit, then down the Saddle. Got to see to see two AT hikers finishing their journey as an added bonus.

Clear day with very little clouds after heavy rain the night before.

Fun  Sucess!

I hiked this one at the end of the 100 mile wildernes part of the appalachian trail.

Class Reunion  Sucess!

Hiked Katahdin with High School buddie Leo,son Ollie and my son Hunter on a beautiful day. Going up was easy, coming down I struggled. I was about a 1/2 hr behind the other 3. Four years later my son wants to return and do the Knifes Edge. Contemplating a 2011 hike!

Up Abol down Hunt  Sucess!

We started at 6:30am and went up the Abol which was steep but not to bad, though I stayed a fair distance behind the person ahead because of the loose rocks which sometimes dislodged. Got to the top traveled some of the knife edge turned around because of time, went back to Baxter Peak, then down the Hunt. 12 hour hike that was awesome. Especially since we were able to hitch a ride back to our campsite at Abol. Haha.
