Steven, I think you will have problems getting a conoe up Katahdin via the
Hunt Spur trail and I am certain that it will be impossible to do so via the
Knife Edge Trail. Once up, there is only a small spring and not really enough
water to float the canoe.
The pros: you will make a name for yourself by being the first to portage over
Just kidding, Steven. Of course you probably meant to say you were bringing a
canoe to Baxter State Park, wherein is found Mt. Katahdin. I can't really
address your real question, other than to say that I think canoeing for a week
in that area must be a real treat, other than constant presence of the black
flies. I hope you get some serious replies to your query.
