The following Maine Appalachian Trail (MAT) blog posts were written on the trail when darkness was falling and the miles logged made 8 PM feel like 2 AM. I did my best to keep my eyelids pried open long enough to jot down rambling thoughts and experiences from the day, and some of them even seem to have come out slightly coherent. I’ve considered editing them (at one point I miscounted the days on the trail), but I’m afraid that would steal the authenticity away. Also included are a few posts geared to helping hikers planning a Maine section hike.
It’s worth noting that adventures on the Maine Appalachian Trail are made possible thanks primarily to the volunteers at the Maine Appalachian Trail Club. Please consider supporting the club to help preserve the trail for future generations.
