The challenge of the mountain... and meeting that challange is the greatest!
It's an all day proposition for most.
Grand views definitely make it worthwhile though ;-)
Fondest memory: The satisfying feeling of having climbed the mountain...and survived. .
-Bring lots of water...
-Wear a hat if it's sunny .
-Comfortable hiking boots.
-High Energy snacks.
Great place to camp if climbing Katahdin. The Hunt trail comes out right to the site.
It is convenient to Katahdin Stream Falls as well.
Fondest memory: I particularly liked puttering around camp and then sauntering up the Hunt Trail to the Falls.
