Debsconeag Backcountry/Nahmakanta Lake 3-day Backpack

Located to the south of the Debsconeag Lakes Wilderness Area and Baxter State Park, Nahmakanta Public Lands is a stunning area full of backcountry lakes and wildlife. This backpacking trip is a 3-day, 2-night loop on the Debsconeag Backcountry Trail and the Appalachian Trail. We will hike past 5 different ponds/lakes, catch some ridgeline views, and camp on the shores of lakes. Previous backpacking experience isn’t necessary, but it is important that participants be in good condition to navigate the terrain and elevation gains while carrying personal and group gear. Registration is required at
