Experience an overnight under the stars on the Appalachian Trail. Bemis Mt. is one of the more popular sections of hiking trails on the western Maine section of the Appalachian Trail. We arrange for you to hike the 10 mile section between So. Arm Rd. and Rte. #17 in two days, spending a night in the Bemis Mt. shelter. Previous hiking experience is recommended as the hike is difficult, and you must have your own back-packing equipment.

On the 1st morning, get dropped off at the base of Old Blue Mt., and begin your adventure with a 3 mile uphill climb to the ridge of the Bemis Range, stay the night at the AT shelter, then continue the next day to hike the rest of the Bemis Range, coming out at Rte. #17, the " Height of the Land” with spectacular views of Lake Mooselookmeguntic, and the mountain range. You will be picked up at this point at a predetermined time and driven back to the lodge for your 2ndnight’s stay.

The package consists of 2 nights at the hiker lodge, and necessary shuttles.
