Hiking Quiz: are you ready?

Why did we create this quiz?

Sure, we want it to be fun and informative, but the truth is:

Indicators show that many of our visitors are arriving unprepared, thus suffering the full range of consequences from mild discomfort to the pain of broken bones, or worse yet, lost loved ones. We felt it was time to develop a tool that allows you, on an independent basis, to learn whether you are likely to have a safe and enjoyable trip on Katahdin. Of course, no quiz is going to cover all eventualities, but we hope you will participate in good humor and make your decisions with some of our advice in mind.

Thanks for being a good sport and, wherever your trip takes you: Happy trails!
