      I will be arriving in Bangor Tuesday, April 15th. My husband will be there working in Baileyville since the 10th and will continue thru the 17th. I will be on my own for 2 days. I have looked at all the websites on Bangor and am overwhelmed at all there is to do. We will be staying at the Hilton Garden Inn on Haskell Rd. What would be the best for me to do on my own for a couple days?

      backpacking or car camping in and around baxter state park

      by bjpreston59 Online Now Aug 5, 2012 at 12:19 PM

      My friend and I are planning a camping trip to maine next year. I backpacked in baxter state park 30 years ago and we stayed in lean-tos along the trail. I am wondering if you can plan a trip without a tent and reserve the lean-tos at 5 to 6 mile intervals? Also, any advise on good trails and campsites appreciated. When would be the best time to avoid crowds, but hopefully blackfies too? I'm thinking a 4 - 5 night loop if possible, or stay at one or two camps and do day hikes from there. We would be interested in easy to moderate hikes for the most part.

      Late arrival for camping

      by jmelnich Online Now Aug 4, 2005 at 12:39 PM

      I am traveling over 9 hours to climb Mt. Katahdin, (The last mountain in the Appalachian Trail) for a one day excursion. Does anyone know the restrictions for camping near the park gate? Has anyone ever tried it?
