Governor Percival P. Baxter so enjoyed vacationing in the Maine woods as a child, he purchased nearly 6,000 acres of land in 1930 to fulfill his dream of creating a park. The park that bears his name now covers 209,501 acres and includes Mount Katahdin, Maine’s highest peak. National Geographic’s Trails Illustrated map of Baxter State Park combines unmatched detail with helpful information to offer an invaluable tool for making the most of your visit.
Expertly researched and created in partnership with local land management agencies, this map features key points of interest including Katahdin Iron Works, Borestone Mountain, Trout Brook Farm, and South Branch Pond. With over 200 miles of hiking trails including a portion of the Appalachian Trail, this map will prove invaluable in your exploration of the park. Trail mileage between intersections will help you choose the path that’s right for you.
The map base includes contour lines and elevations for summits, passes and many lakes. Some of the recreation features noted include campgrounds, trailheads, interpretive trails, picnic areas, rental cabins, boating access, and canoe carry down points. Every Trails Illustrated map is printed on “Backcountry Tough” waterproof, tear-resistant paper. A full UTM grid is printed on the map to aid with GPS navigation.
