Maine has so many places that even the natives might not know about. Maine is a great state for day trips and with summer here, maybe a family day trip is in your future. Here's one day trip that you might want to take, Gulf Hagas, is often called the Grand Canyon of Maine.

Gulf Hagas was formed by the western branch of the Pleasant River in Kathadin Iron Works Park State Park. There are plenty of waterfalls and trails to explore.

The river and Gulf Hagas was used by logging companies to transport logs towards Kathadin Iron Works.

In 1969 it was designated as a National Natural Scenic Landmark. You can explore by hiking one of the many trails, including the 8.6 mile Gulf Rim Trail. There is plenty of great kayaking and swimming.
