Is Mahoosuc Nothch the hardest or most fun mile of the Appalachian Trail? I think it’s a mixture of both! Basically a jumble of huge boulder piles, it’s definitely not like any other hiking I’ve ever done. I would say the first 3/4 of a mile was just fun, but by the last 1/4 mile I was tired and ready to be just plain walking again. It didn’t help that it was at the end of the day when we headed in to the boulder jumble.It took us about 2 hours to get through the mile long Mahoosuc Notch with a snack break about half way through. We definitely had to take off our packs through some of the tight squeezes. All in all we had fun. My advice? Take your time, look at it as a new adventure and enjoy the novelty of the experience. And just like that, Maine was almost over. We are ready for you New Hampshire!
