Fall Foliage Hikes: Easy to Moderate or Challenging, Your Call
Moxie Falls Waterfall Hike
An easy ½-mile hiking trail to the top of one of the highest waterfalls in New England. View 90-foot Moxie Falls from one of several boardwalks built atop the steep, wooded gorge. The stream has numerous swimming holes and is a popular spot on warm days, even in fall. A great hike for young and old so bring your bathing suit!
Forks Area Scenic Trail (FAST)
Directly across from the Northern Outdoors Adventure Resort, this five-mile, multi-purpose trail follows the Old Canada Road along the Kennebec River north to The Forks, located at the confluence of the Kennebec and Dead River valleys.
Maine Appalachian Trail-Pleasant Pond Mountain (2,480 ft.)
Outstanding half-day hike along the Appalachian National Hiking Trail that takes you to an open summit atop Pleasant Pond Mountain with spectacular 360° views of seemingly boundless forests and lakes.
Moxie Bald Mountain (2,630 ft.)
This full-day hike takes you into the heart of Maine’s North Woods. The mountain is a long ridge running north-south for about 4 miles. Although the summit is not very high, it has many features of above-timberline summits because of its extended ledges and open crest.
