A nice section meandering along the Wassataquoik stream (Wass-a-ta-cook).

Runner Notes

This trail is smooth and nice - it's a fast, runnable section.

Description

This is an easy section of trail that should flow along nicely. Only about a half mile in is a great view over a pond of the Mount Katahdin massiff. About a third of the way along, there is a huge glacial erratic that the trail goes around. There's a stream crossing at mile 6, that could be sketchy at high water. Take a left at about 6.4 miles (10.3k) onto the Northwest basin Trail.
