The highest point of the Northeast of the USA is in Maine, and more specifically, Mount Washington. Despite the accomplishment that comes with climbing to the highest point, there are numerous risks. You’ll get some of the strongest winds in the world, which makes this trail one of the most treacherous hiking trails in the world. Adventurers are especially drawn to the lush forests that are over 400 million years old, the glaciers, and wildlife. Experienced hikers love Mount Katahdin solely because it’s one of the pinnacles to hiking in Northeast America (New England).
