Hiking at Nahmakanta

Nahmakanta is without question the best hiking camp in Maine !

Woodland crossroads

Appalachian Trail

Over 70 miles of beautiful hiking trails literally surround our camp, maintained exclusively  for “foot travel” only. This includes one of the most scenic stretches of the “100 Mile Wilderness” section of the famous Appalachian Trail.

Granite Ledges

Trailside Spring

Pollywog Gorge trail meanders through a huge moss-carpeted boulder field under a primeval forest of spruce and pine.

Along the trail

Rainbow Stream Falls

Another local trail follows a spectacular 1/4 mile long flume of the emerald-tinted Rainbow Stream, which cascades into a deep, crystal-clear swimming pool, a wonderful and refreshing oasis on warm summer days.

Wilderness Jacuzzi

Looking south from Nesuntabunt 

It would take many seasons to hike and explore all of the special places in the Nahmakanta Wilderness.
