Spaulding Option Hike
June 25, 2016 from 10:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
Our next Maine Hikes trip will be up the ridge from Caribou Valley Road to Spaulding Mountain (4,009 feet). We’re calling this an option hike because in addition to the basic, 4.5 mile hike up to Spaulding Mountain, there will be two additional destinations to choose from: Sugarloaf Mountain, a 0.6 mile side trip from the A.T.; and Mount Abraham, which will require spending a night at the Spaulding campsite and then taking the Fire Warden’s Trail 5.9 miles down to Rapid Stream Road.
The Spaulding Mountain hike is 4.5 miles each way for a total distance of 9 miles, and should take a total of about 6 to 6.5 hours to complete. Most of the hike follows the long ridge between Sugarloaf and Spaulding. Due to the length and some steep sections, this is a strenuous hike.
For those of you who want to climb Sugarloaf, a trip leader will take you on the Sugarloaf side trail while the main group continues to Spaulding. The Sugarloaf group will catch up to the main group at some point along the ridge. For those of you who want to take the Fire Warden’s Trail to Mount Abraham and down to Rapid Stream Road, please contact as as soon as you can. We are going to make arrangements to help spot cars for the overnight group.
