With over 200 miles (322 km) of hiking trails in some of the wildest and most spectacular terrain in New England to explore, some fine picnic and swimming areas (such as Togue Pond Beach, the Slide Dam shelter along Nesowadnehunk Stream and Katahdin Lake) and known for being the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail this park is truly a place to discover....

When fall foliage colors begin to emerge in early September this is even more a place you'd like to visit.
If you are on a tight schedule, be sure to visit the "what to do page" on the Baxter State Park website. See also the Friends of Baxter State Park website for more information. Baxter State Park is also part of the Maine Birding Trail.
Keep in mind that parking lots can fill early. Day use is limited by the capacity of trailhead parking lots. You can make a day use parking reservation for the popular Katahdin-access tailheads.
For Tours and Program information, view the Maine Parks and Lands Event Calendar.
