On this Maine Appalachian Trail Land Trust winter Community Hike, we will explore Little Bigelow, the long, lower peak at the east end of the Bigelow Range. This hike is approximately 6.2 miles in length and should take at least 6 hours start to finish. It features spectacular views of the Bigelow Range, Flagstaff Lake, and Maine’s High Peaks. Maine Trail Finder rates it as a Moderate to Advanced hike.
The trailhead can be reached by taking ME-16 to North New Portland, where Long Falls Dam Road begins. Take Long Falls Dam Road for 17.4 miles, and then take a left onto East Flagstaff Road. After 0.7 miles take the left fork to continue onto East Flagstaff Road (the right fork, Bog Brook Road, dead ends at Flagstaff Lake). There is parking in the gravel pit on the right just before the A.T. crossing 0.1 miles after the fork. The road is usually plowed to the split or just beyond – we will park there if it is not plowed to the A.T. Carpooling will be arranged.
