Long known as the most arduous section of the Appalachian Trail, the 100-Mile Wilderness takes its name from the approximate distance between towns on either side. This is remote country, and as the trail follows the slopes of wooded mountains and scoops of lake-speckled valleys, hikers get an authentic taste of the Maine northwoods—complete with moose, lynx, loons, and other wild creatures.
