The Sobo’s guide to Baxter and Katahdin for 2019

Baxter And Katahdin Info for ATers.

Your first stop for info: Baxter State Park.

Join the Appalachian Trail SOBO 2018 , or the  Appalachian Trail SOBO 2019 Facebook groups!
The name of the mountain is Katahdin, the summit is Baxter Peak.
The famous sign isn’t on the peak – go tag that 12 foot high cairn!
The AT is called the Hunt Trail from Katahdin Stream Campground to Baxter Peak. The traditional start for sobos is a there-and-back-again climb from Katahdin Stream Campground to Baxter Peak.
The ATC has a registration program for those attempting AT thru-hikes. A very useful tool for planning and distributing information. Please visit ATChere.
Share – the bus ride, the shuttle, the campsite – save $, make friends.
Kennel that pooch! No dogs allowed in Baxter state Park. I recommend Katahdin Critters and Connie McManus.
Bring cash, as Baxter Park does not accept debit or credit cards.
