Maine’s 20 Most Popular Mountains According to Its Residents
Maine Has Mountains
I don't have to tell anyone that Maine is a mountainous state. Numerous ranges call Maine home, and many mountains have national appeal.
There are 4,000 footers, 360 degree summits, coastal gems, challenging climbs, and picturesque terrains.
What's best is the incredible variety of mountains Maine has.
All shapes, sizes, and skill levels can be found all over this state. It's a wonderful quality that has helped keep plenty of tourists coming to hike and enjoy Maine's peaks.
Maine's Most Popular Mountains
With mountains being such a big part of our existence here in Maine, it made me curious about which peaks are the most popular. What are the hikes, climbs and jaunts that Mainers truly love the most?
Is it the popular peaks or the off-the-beaten-path secret?
However, there are a few that were surprising to see, especially the Thorncrag Bird Sanctuary.
It's a wonderfully diverse list that includes many peaks from the Northwest and Baxter State Park, as well as coastal and lake-based mountains. It's a true Maine mashup.
As proud as I am to have climbed a few of these, it's certainly exciting to see many others that have piqued (no pun intended) my interest.
