I am looking to hike Katahdin in late August, no black flies and less tourists. I plan to go up via the Knife edge. I have experience hiking and backpacking of many years, having hiked sections of the AT, western US and Patagonia. Looking forward to going with to one of the most interesting places on the east coast that I have not been to. It's been on my bucket list.
Hi, Did you already go for this? If not I'm down to do the hike next week.. I'm from Toronto but I'm in Boston until the 18th so thinking of doing this hike next week. I'm not a pro hiker but I've done a few 400-500m summits around Canada and US. Let me know if this works for you.
