Hiking in the 100 Mile Wilderness

Another article in Tux Turkel's series about the opportunities in the large region of northern Maine recently 'spoken for' by the AMC, "A race down the mountain; Three hikers gamble on taking a shorter return route, using their wits to find an unbuilt trail and get to camp before dark" relates the story of Turkel and associates looking for, finding, and more or less following a recently (as in 14 months ago) marked future trail that will eventually be a blue blaze off the Appalachian Trail near Chairback Mountain. It's in the 25 July 2007 issue of the Portland Press Herald.

A nicely written description of how it all worked out for them.
