Gulf Hagas
Found in the 100-mile wilderness section of the Appalachian Trail, Gulf Hagas is known as the Grand Canyon of the East. You’ll understand why when you see the towering rock walls, the network of trails and the series of waterfalls that plunge as much as 500 feet past the rock formations. The three-mile-long gorge is home to the Pleasant River, and attracts both serious hikers – you’ll likely meet some AT thru hikers – and day-trippers admiring the falls. Your way in is past the Katahdin Iron Works, a state historic site dating to 1845.
