Are you ready for a trip of your lifetime??? We guarantee you that every time you drive by Mt. Katahdin on I-95 you will never look at the mountain the same way again. This two night three day trip will test you in a way you have never been tested before. Back for its fifth year participants anxiously await this summer rite of passage. Upon arrival we bike to the famous ledge falls, a natural rockslide water fall where we spend the remaining afternoon basking in the sun and sliding down the rocks. The night caps off with a carb loading fest complete with our famous homemade meat sauce in preparation for 10 grueling hours of physical exertion. Upon completing our climb we retreat to our campsite for an eating frenzy complete with campfire stories of aching muscles and sore feet. We conclude our trip with an exhilarating bike ride out to Togue Pond Beach where we pack up the trailer, eat, swim, and reminisce about what a great trip we had.
