Berry Pickers Trail to Saddleback and The Horn via the A.T.
July 31 from 9:30 am - 5:00 pmFree
Our next Community Hike on the A.T. will be up the Berry Pickers Trail to The Horn and Saddleback Mountain on Saturday, July 31st. We will meet at 9:30am at Edmund’s Market on Route 4 in Phillips and convoy to the trailhead together in 4WD vehicles since we have a few coming along. We drive to an ATV gate and from there proceed 1.4 miles to the trailhead via the Fly Rod Crosby Trail. From the trailhead proper, it is about 1.6 miles to the top of the ridge and then another 0.9 miles to The Horn, for a total distance of 7.8 miles out and back.
An exact description of the route can be found here at Maine Trail Finder:
And here is a natural history guide to the hike from the Maine Natural Heritage Hikes program.
We are going to head up to The Horn since that is the less travelled peak!
