Where in the woods am I? Big Spencer

Last week, I returned to one of my favorite hikes. This mountain is pretty far out in the woods; you’ve gotta drive on some bumpy roads to reach the trailhead; but in the end, I think it’s worth the extra effort.

Guess which mountain in Maine I’m talking about by viewing the gallery of photos, taken on Sept. 13, 2012, below. The profile of this mountain is fairly distinctive. But there are also quite a few ladders and structures at the top. Leave your best guesses in the comment section below.

If you enjoy challenging hikes in Maine, stay tuned to this blog. I’ll be posting a video of the hike tomorrow, as well as information on how to get there and the state of the trails.
