The Challenge

The mountains in the Moosehead Pinnacle Pursuit offer panoramic views from each corner of the Moosehead Lake region. This challenge offers the perfect itinerary for a climb each day of your week long stay. Don’t have a week? Get started early each day and shorten your agenda by pairing up Borestone & Number Four Mountain and Kineo & Big Moose. We suggest you leave White Cap and Eagle Rock each to their own day. You do not have to finish all of these hikes in one trip! You can visit the Moosehead Lake Region multiple times to complete your hikes.
