MYA is heading back to hike glorious Borestone Mountain near the southern end of Maine’s 100-Mile Wilderness! Adventurers will explore beautiful Gulf Hagas with amazing hiking and waterfalls as well.
The adventure begins as we gather in Greenville at our own private wood cabin on loon lake - Moosehead Hills Loon Lodge. The cabin has incredible views with nothing less than majestic Mt. Kineo across the water. Situated in a peaceful spot with plenty of autumnal colors to take in, adventurers will enjoy yoga practices, healthy vegetarian food, hiking, nighttime explorations and more. If adventurers need to arrive later than 3pm, no worries!
Saturday morning we'll head out to Borestone Mountain Sanctuary, encompassing more than 1,600 acres in Maine's Hundred Mile Wilderness region, the area offers a spectacular array of natural features, including rare older forest, crystalline ponds, exposed granite crags and sweeping panoramic views.
From the nature center at Sunrise Pond, adventurers will head to the summit on a moderately strenuous climb that culminates in spectacular 360-degree views from two peaks at nearly 2,000 feet. We'll get in the Peregrine Trail as well upon our return, through mossy woods to breathe in more stunning views. The hike will take approximately 3 1/2 hours - 4 hours. Our cabin will be a haven as we relax, rejuvenate and prepare for Gulf Hagas on Sunday Funday!
The Grand Canyon of Maine, Gulf Hagas is a slate gorge carved out by the West Branch of the Pleasant River. Over the course of three miles, the river drops about 500 feet, forming mesmerizing waterfalls and swimming holes. Dramatic rock walls that border the river can get as high as 100 feet tall. As a group, we can decide which trail suits us best. Family MYA made it to Screw Auger Falls in 2016 :)
