Description

Alpine regions do exist in the Northeast, but are less extensive than in western United States and Alaska. Although the areal extent of alpine soils is not known in Maine, nearly 1.4 million acres of land are classified by the Soil Conservation Service as "mountainous." In Maine several mountains with subsidiary peaks greater than 4,000 ft in elevation support alpine zones, including Katahdin, Sugarloaf, Bigelow, North Brother, Saddleback, and Abraham.
