HIGHLIGHTS: The Appalachian Trail in Maine is generally considered the most difficult of all the fourteen states that the A.T. traverses. In some sections, don’t expect to hike more than a mile an hour and get used to steep ascents and descents. Slippery and sometimes hazardous weather can occur at any time, and the terrain is often remote to say the least.
This hike along the Appalachian Trail near Monson, Maine starts at State Route 15 and follows the A.T. southbound around Buck Hill (1587 feet), past Lake Hebron, and then back toward Monson. After 3.3 miles a blue-blazed side trail enters from the left then follows a side trail 0.3 miles to a parking area.
