List Description

Maine is as large in area as the rest of New England combined, and has more counties than any other New England state. Most Maine county high points are relatively famous summits. The bushwhack up East Turner Mountain is often regarded as the hardest summit on this list.


Sources that were used to help me compile this list include:

  • Personal research done prior to 1988.
  • Article "New England's Highest Points by County" by Paul Moore, Appalachia magazine, June 15, 1988, p. 68-72.
  • Book County High Points by Andy Martin; list compiled 1993 by Andy Martin, reviewed by Roy Schweiker.
