Baxter State Park in Maine‘s Piscataquis County announced on Wednesday that the entire Katahdin and Traveler Trails will close at trailheads until December 1.

 “Shin-deep snow has obscured trail markings, and freeze-thaw cycles have created vulnerable conditions for alpine plants and potentially unsafe conditions for hikers,” the park’s press release read.

The Park also closed all campsites, including Katahdin Stream Campground, until December 1.

Hikers (including the northbound Appalachian Trail thru-hikers) will not be able to climb Katahdin. The Park usually shuts down the entire Katahdin along with Traveler trails between mid-October to protect its resources throughout the year.

Other trails within Baxter State Park remain open for the moment. You can contact Baxter State Park through their Facebook page or by calling 207-723-5140 for additional information regarding fall access.
