Location: West of Newry, Oxford County
Description: The Mahoosuc Public Reserved Land unit includes the entire Mahoosuc Range, which features some of Maine’s most challenging and beautiful mountains, including the 4,180-foot Old Speck. A receding glacier 12,000 years ago created the Mahoosuc Range and what is commonly known to be 12 of the most difficult miles of the entire Appalachian Trail. The unit also contains a 9,993-acre Ecological Reserve, which protects sensitive and rare ecosystems. The land is enjoyed by hikers, but also by those who want to partake in winter recreation activities in one of Maine’s most popular public reserved land units.
Activities: Hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, swimming, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and observing wildlife. Visit Maine Trail Finder for Wright and Mahoosuc Notch Trails in the unit.
