Little Bigelow Hike
October 19 from 9:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
Our next A.T. community hike will take place on October 19th – we will be tackling Little Bigelow, the long, lower peak at the east end of the Bigelow Range. We just hiked this mountain in October but it’s so awesome that we wanted to do it again in the snow! This hike is approximately 6.2 miles in length and should take at least 6 hours start to finish. It features spectacular views of the Bigelow Range, Flagstaff Lake and Maine’s High Peaks. Maine Trail Finder rates it as a Moderate to Advanced hike.
The trailhead can be reached by taking Maine 16 to North New Portland, where Long Falls Dam Road begins. Take Long Falls Dam Road for 17.4 miles, and then take a left onto East Flagstaff Road. After 0.7 miles take the left fork to continue onto East Flagstaff Road (the right fork, Bog Brook Road, dead ends at Flagstaff Lake). There is parking in the gravel pit on the right just before the A.T. crossing 0.1 miles after the fork. The road is usually plowed to the split or just beyond – we’ll park there if it’s not plowed to the A.T.
We will be meeting in the parking area at 9:00am on Saturday, October 19th. You must RSVP for this hike below or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 207-808-2073!
