"The Maine Development Commission takes great pleasure in presenting for the first time a Guide to Mountain Climbing in Maine. It is realized that this guide is by no means complete. When it is realized that Maine has eleven mountains over 4,000 feet high and around one hundred over 3,000 feet high, together with those hundreds under 3,000, one can realize that it is almost impossible to put forth a complete guide.

Then too, many of Maine's mountain peaks are inaccessible. The object of this mountain booklet is to give the climber directions for getting to those accessible peaks, and to give him some idea about the trail and the climb.

We have purposely included a few mountain peaks that are somewhat inaccessible, also some of the lower mountains for the inexperienced. We have tried our best to get this information absolutely correct, but we realize there may be some errors in the data."

Exact publication date not identified on booklet. Likely late 1930s, early 1940s.
