Baxter State Park is one of the largest wilderness areas in the North East of the US. Baxter State Park was established as a gift to the people of Maine from Percival Baxter, a former governor who used his personal fortune to purchase the more than 200,000 acres (800 sq km) of the park, with the goal to keep the land forever wild. As a result, there is no commercial activities, paved roads, running water, or even electricity inside Baxter State Park, where access is strictly controlled. The centerpiece of Baxter State Park is Katahdin Mountain, at 5,267 feet (1,605m) the highest mountain in Maine, famous as the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail.
