Our first hike of the day was up to Barren Ledges and Barren Mountain. The summit of Barren Mountain had an old lookout tower that we climbed in hopes of seeing Katahdin but Whitecap Mountain blocked our view. We walked on planks across Fourth Mountain Bog, climbed Fourth Mountain, Third Mountain, Columbus Mountain and Chairback Mountain. We stayed at Carl A. Newhal Lean-to for the night and hiked 20.8 miles for the day. Our day took longer than we expected but we could see the end in sight with only a few days left of hiking.
