National Geographic's recreational map of Baxter State Park/Mount Katahdin is a two-sided, waterproof map designed to meet the needs of outdoor enthusiasts with unmatched durability and detail. Loaded with valuable information about hiking, camping, and fishing in the park, the map also includes a UTM and latitude/longitude grid, as well as compass rose and scale bar for easy and accurate navigation.
Year-round activities abound in the park and the location of scenic viewpoints, wildlife viewing, boat launches and canoe carry downs, lookout towers, amphitheaters, ATV trails, and other points of interest are clearly marked as are park boundaries and access points. Campers will appreciate the attention paid to noting the variety of camping facilities available including primitive campsites, group campsites, rental cabins, RV camping, picnic shelters, restrooms, parking, and trailheads. Appalachian Mountain Club operated lodges, huts, backcountry shelters and campsites are included as well. Whether paddling the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, camping in the North Maine Woods, or hiking the Appalachian Trail, these maps perform as highly functional travel tools that are as useful as they are remarkably crafted.
The front of the Baxter State Park map details the south half of the park from the lower half of the Main Public Woods – Nahmakanta Lake Unit and includes Roach Ponds, the Katahdin Iron Works, and the KI-JO Mary Multiple Use Forest. The northern half of the park appears on the back of the map and includes Mount Katahdin as well as the Main Public Woods – Telos Unit, the Debsconeag Lakes Wilderness Area, and the upper half of the Nahmakanta Lake Unit.
