Contact HL Joe Kiczek (C) 484-639-8824:  Trip to start in Baxter State Park by summiting Mt. Katadin, the highest point in Maine at 5267 ft.  We will then begin heading south toward Monson, ME.  There are many water crossings without bridges and elevation changes of 2000+ feet.  Trip will pass thru the 100 Mile Wilderness; there is no public road access, as it is an active forestry area crisscrossed only by logging roads.  Trip is limited to a total of 5 backpackers, as campsites will not accommodate large groups.  Attendees are required to participate in at least 3 multi-day backpacking trips as a group in preparation for this trip. 

Specific details are still being worked out.

For more information contact HL Joe Kiczek (C) 484-639-8824 or

Deadline for participation commitment: March 10, 2023
