100 MILE WILDERNESS

Welcome to the 100 Mile Wilderness website! Inside you will find a wealth of information and helpful tips that will assist you in planning and enjoying a successful hike through Maine’s rugged 100 Mile Wilderness. I’ve hiked the Appalachian Trail 3 times (’77-’82-’10) and have hiked the 100 Mile Wilderness as a trip 13 times. I’ve been a volunteer with the Maine Appalachian Trail Club for the past 40 years; and Honorary Member of MATC since 1998. I’ve helped build many of the lean-to’s you’ll stay in, as well as helped relocate many miles of the Appalachian Trail you’ll be hiking through in the 100 Mile Wilderness. I know at least 20 ways in and out of the 100 Mile Wilderness, offer resupply options and a “safety net” in case you need to exit early. I am here to help you with planning and I’m always here to help you with any needs. I’m a Registered Maine Guide and the only Maine Guide who operates specifically in the 100 Mile Wilderness. The tool bar to the right will help you navigate your way through this site and I am always here to answer any questions you may have.

I provide clean, quiet and comfortably furnished accommodations which include 4 private cabins and 2 private twin bunkhouses.

MAPS AND GUIDES……Maps and Guidebooks are currently out of stock and are unavailable until the 2018 season. The MATC is doing a new and updated printing. New Guidebooks and maps should be available for Spring. The Maine Appalachian Trail Club publishes a complete, up to date and detailed map series that covers every aspect of planning and hiking the 100 Mile Wilderness, including water sources, camp sites, road access and route of the Trail. The Guide and Guide/Map series are the official source of information for the 100 Mile Wilderness and Appalachian Trail in Maine.
