The 100 Mile Wilderness is the northernmost section of the 2179 mile long Appalachian Trail which runs along the mountainous region of the Eastern seaboard from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Katahdin in Maine. The 100 Mile Wilderness is considered by many to be the most remote and inaccessible section of the entire Appalachian Trail. While the 100 Mile Wilderness is not a "true" wilderness, the character of the land, the rugged terrain, the pristine lakes and ponds and the far reaching and unspoiled views encompass the emotional feelings of being isolated from the hustle and bustle of the civilized world. What the 100 Mile Wilderness is, in fact, is a narrow Trail corridor, roughly 1000 feet wide, which passes through a working forest. Bordered on both sides of the Trail by large, private landowners and State lands, the 100 Mile Wilderness is part of the National Park system and maintained by Volunteers of the Maine Appalachian Trail Club.
