My girlfriend and I camped at Chimney Pond and summited Katahdin on 7/22/07. The weather was beautiful, a bit cool at night (50s). I find this trip (my 5th) to be done best by camping...some do the whole route from Roaring Brook to summit and back, but it's a bit much for many. The first night, a 2 yr. old bull moose kept us company - we watched him browse vegetation for a couple of hours before he moved on. Nothing beats watching the sun set from Chimney Pond! Those who camp there appreciate these things, and good company abounds.

From Chimney Pond, four routes are available: Dudley Trail (a challenge), Cathedral (the hardest), the Saddle (easiest) and the Hamlin Ridge (middle of the road). We chose to summit via the Hamlin Ridge, approx. 2 miles, to intersect with the Saddle. From Saddle to Baxter Peak is another 1.5 miles of boulder scramble/rough trail. There is a spring on the marked trail near Hamlin Peak, and another (Caribou Spring) on the downslope side  (more...)
