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.
