Join us on a two-night backpacking trip exploring the least-known part of the White Mountains - the Caribou-Speckled Mountain Wilderness. Located just over the border from New Hampshire, it is Maine's largest wilderness area. We will hike up to 8 miles per day, with about 4000 feet of elevation gain over the three days, setting a moderate pace. We hope to enjoy the views from the summit of Speckled Mountain (approx. 3000 ft) as well as mountain streams and glades.
Stephen loves the outdoors, particularly in winter. He started hiking and backpacking as a teen and has not stopped since. He has hiked the NH 4000 footers several times in all seasons, and thru-hiked the AT in 2016. Stephen has led trips for the AMC for many years. He prefers backpacks (multi-day when his schedule allows), and hikes at a relaxed pace.
