A bit of a drive to get to but worth it. There is a fee per person to enter through Telos Gate. This eerie hike is a perfect example of man vs. nature. Steamers from the early 1900's in the middle of the woods where nature inevitably took it back. Great photo spot and amazing piece of history hidden away.
This scenic hike brings you right to the base of Katahdin where the waters of Katahdin Stream thunder beneath the northernmost bridge on the Appalachian Trail. Refreshingly cool in the summer, and especially spectacular during the snowmelt on the high peaks, Katahdin Stream Falls is well worth the hike.
The Roaring Brook Nature Trail is a short loop trail which winds through a variety of forest communities bordered by Roaring Brook and a highland bog replete with voracious pitcher plants and other unique bog plants. Plank viewing platforms extend into the bog at two points along the Nature Trail, allowing visitors a unique look at the bog's flora and fauna. The Roaring Brook trail provides excellent views of both South Turner Mountain and the east side of Katahdin with its prominent cirques.
The Little Abol Falls trail is relatively short but scenic, bearing east from Abol Campground through old cuttings to a beautiful set of falls on a branch of Abol Stream. This provides an easy half-day trip.
The blue-blazed trail begins at the upper end of Abol Campground between lean-tos #8 and #10 and immediately crosses a small brook. The trail follows an old woods road as it ascends gradually uphill with good views of the southwest side of Katahdin, including prominent Abol Slide. After 0.8 miles the trail reaches a tributary of Abol Stream. A short distance downstream the brook makes a sheer, 15-foot drop over solid rock to a small pool below. This is an excellent picnic spot.
