Marker Description: Mount Katahdin is the highest mountain in Maine and the name means "The Greatest Mountain" in Penobscot. Located in Baxter State Park, the area around the peak was protected by Governor Percival Baxter in the 1930s. Katahdin is the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail.

DIRECTIONS: Take Interstate 95 to the Millinocket-Mattawamkeag exit o Millinocket, turn right by a high school onto Katahadin Avenue then left at the sign for Baxter State Park. Follow that about 16 miles to the park. From there, either take the Perimeter Road or the Roaring Brook Road/Baxter State Park Road to the trailhead you desire for your ascent. Roads are gravel and used to be pretty rough but aren't as bad since '06.
