Geographic Locations International Geological Survey Marker

Cadillac Mountain:  

The highest point on the eastern coast of the United States, Cadillac Mountain rises high above the blue waters of Frenchman Bay. With its landscape of lichen-covered granite and stunted evergreen trees, the mountain's summit is extremely fragile. Faced with harsh weather and shallow soil, alpine plants cling precariously to life. Misplaced footsteps can destroy life that took years to develop.
As more people visit Cadillac Mountain to experience the spectacular scenery, protecting its fragile environment becomes essential. National Park Service fences, signs, and staff direct visitors away from sensitive areas. None of these efforts to save Cadillac Mountain will work without your help. Stay on trails or step on solid rock ledges. Do not build cairns or other rock objects. Place all trash in proper receptacles. Leave No Trace as you explore the wonders of Cadillac Mountain. 

Mt Katahdin:  

Mount Katahdin is the northern U.S. terminus of the 2,100 mile Appalachian Trail. Of its several summits, Baxter Peak, at 5,267* feet, is Maine's highpoint and ranks seventh of high peaks of the northeast. An outstanding feature of this granite mountain is its massive isolation--rising more than 4200 feet higher than its immediate surroundings. Hikers attempting the summits of Katahdin are well advised to be prepared for changing weather conditions.
"Katahdin" is an American Indian name meaning "greatest mountain." It is located on land given to the State of Maine by its 49th governor, Percival R. Baxter. The creation of Baxter State Park in 1931 was governed by his conditions that it always remains a wildlife sanctuary and public land for recreational use.
This medallion is fashioned after the benchmark at the summit of Baxter Peak. It is located about 45 feet SE of a 4-foot cairn. 

Mt Washington:  

Named after George Washington, Mount Washington, is one of the most beloved mountains of North America and has beckoned millions of visitors to its awesome summit. They come year round by trail and auto road, from the region and from countries everywhere. Located in the Presidential Range of the White Mountains, it is the highest point in Northeastern USA.
Mount Washington Observatory stands at the summit where dedicated scientists gather weather data at the center of the "Worst Weather in the World."
