Maine's Appalachian Trail: How Seniors Made Section Hiking Easier

By: Harvey A. Dennenberg a.k.a. GrandPa Walking

 Of the fourteen states traversed by the Appalachian Trail (AT), Maine is considered the most difficult to hike because of its rugged, steep terrain. So, how were "GrandPa Walking" and his fellow seniors able to hike Maine's treacherous peaks? With proper planning and resources, it is possible for seniors, even those in their seventies, to hike the AT in Maine.

 In this book, GrandPa Walking shares the specific gear and creative routes he and other younger seniors used in order to day hike and limit their overnight backpacking stays. He also provides directions and GPS coordinates for little-known access points. The author has hiked the entire AT over thirteen-seasons of which Maine's AT was hiked during part of June and July for eight of those seasons. Even those not looking to hike the AT will enjoy this account of the author's journey through rugged Maine's AT.
