50 Hikes in the Maine Mountains: Day Hikes and Overnights from the Rangeley Lakes to Baxter State Park, Third Edition
50 Hikes in the Maine Mountains: Day Hikes and Overnights from the Rangeley Lakes to Baxter State Park, Third Edition
by Cloe Chunn
Paperback from Countryman Press/Backcountry Books
ISBN: 0881504998

An updated guide to one of the East Coast's most popular hiking venues.
"After more than two decades of hiking," writes Cloe Chunn, "I am even more in love with this place." "This place" is northern Maine, a magnificent and largely unspoiled stretch of landscape encompassing Baxter State Park, the Rangeley Lakes, Aroostook County, and much more. Chunn leads hikers up Maine's highest and most scenic peaks--Mounts Katahdin, Kineo, Traveler, and Doubletop--from gentle grades to vertiginious scrambling along the Knife's Edge. She leads you to waterfalls, remote ponds, lookout towers, swimming holes, and incomparable vistas. Hikes in this revised third edition range in length from 2 hours to 5 days, and provide something for hikers of all abilities. Each hike description includes a topographical map and information on mileage, rise, and terrain. Along the way Chunn provides information on the geology, wildlife, and history of each trail. And she places special emphasis on family hiking--how to choose the best trails for kids, and how to make the trip appealing to hikers of every age. 40 black-and-white photographs and 51 maps

Canoe Trip: Alone in the Maine Wilderness
Canoe Trip: Alone in the Maine Wilderness
by David Curran
Paperback from Hellgate Press
ISBN: 1555716733

Each year Dave Curran travels alone by canoe into the Maine wilderness. He's paddled the Seboeis, the Allagash and the Moose. Despite the foolhardiness of such an adventure, he prefers to go alone. It's easier to plan, and going alone he's more focused, less distracted. He goes for the challenge, battling weather, bears, black flies, mosquitoes, getting lost. He goes for the scenery, the wildness, the silence, the peace. Curran works as a clinical psychologist and lives with his wife and two children in Berlin, Massachusetts. He is also the author of Hellgate Press's Canoe Trip: North to Athabasca.
