    Default Katahdin/Hunt Trail

    I hiked Katahdin yesterday. So I have officially started my sobo thru. The trail required a lot more climbing than I expected. I am glad to have the hardest climb on the AT over with. I recommend anyone taking the hike to bring some gloves and leave your poles at the campground. I tried to insert a pic but I am not sure it worked.

    I agree with Hikerboy57. Tough, but not the worst.... Also, I disagree about leaving your poles, they are pretty necessary coming back down!

    Yep... You'll find many places between Gorham and Glencliff that'll be tougher than Katahdin...
