You'll walk the backbone of the Northern Appalachians, the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Many of the trails here are above the timberline, offering wonderful views of this impressive range. On arrival, you delve straight into the beauty of this area with a planned hike to Lonesome Lake. The trail leads to the southern end of Lonesome Lake with an additional 0.5 miles to an Appalachian Mountain hut and the option of extending further. Most of the trail is tree covered so will be shaded from the sun, making it even more of an enjoyable experience.

This area is well known to hikers all over the world, both for its stunning scenery and constantly changing weather.

Baxter State Park is home to Mount Katahdin, the finishing point of the 3,500 km long Appalachian Trail. Wander and enjoy the largest of the most remote wilderness areas in the eastern USA. Here you can truly get away from it all on footpaths that wind through undisturbed forest and along the crystal-clear lakes and streams of northern Maine. Keep both eyes and ears open for the chance to encounter some of the wildlife that thrives here. This tranquil wilderness is virtually untouched since the days of the first settlers, over three hundred years ago. As you pause to reflect on the solitude of this beautiful place, it's hard to imagine that two-thirds of America's population lives within a day's drive of the Appalachian Trail.
On day seven you hike Mt Katahdin via the Hunt Trail, which is a strenuous hike with more than 4,150 ft. elevation gain, taking approximately 10 hours. The rewarding views on this trail are some of the finest in New England, but should only be attempted by those fit enough.

Continue your journey by visiting the incredible Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island. Acadia National Park is a joy to the senses with a pristine natural landscape of granite mountains, lakes, rocky coastlines, islands and rolling ocean waves, with an abundance of wildlife.
Of course, the reason Acadia has built such a reputation is due to the sheer volume of hiking opportunities available, with about 125 miles of trails which are often interconnected, and which range in difficulty from easy to strenuous.
In the afternoon of day 9, you walk an easy trail but one of the best of its class in this area. The scenic Ocean Path trail meanders in a southerly direction along the eastern shore of Mount Desert Island, for approximately two miles until it arrives at Otter Cliff and Otter Point with numerous points to stop for the perfect picture. For those not wanting to walk today, you can explore the town of Bar Harbor or try one of the optional activities and excursions this area is so well known for, such as sea kayaking or deep-sea fishing.
