Trail Overview

This Gauntlet Falls West Trail is a branch starting at the Katahdin Iron Works Historic site which is also the Ki-Jo Mary check-in point for the Northern Maine Woods. The trail is all dirt roads typically wide enough for 2 vehicles to pass. The trail has a variety of spurs to be explored with time. The trail ends at the Gauntlet Falls where you can dip into the water and/or just look at how the natural water has carved out the rock. There is a large sloping flat section of rock that has been a spot for graffiti for over 40 years, interesting to see and spending time at. A great lunch spot!
