In Maine’s western mountains, the Bigelow Preserve rewards hikers with challenging terrain and spectacular views. Many of the trails (which include the Appalachian Trail) are steep and rocky, and with a good amount of hiking above treeline, the trails can be exposed to severe weather. So take caution.
But for those hikers who enjoy a challenge (or can at least put up with one), they will be treated to great views of Maine’s fourth-largest lake – Flagstaff Lake – and panoramic views stretching to Mount Washington.
