Gulf Hagas is a steep-walled, youthful gorge, cut by a wild river through folded and tilted slates and siltstones. The site illustrates the successive processes of sedimentation, rock formation, and erosion. Waterfalls, cliffs, and growth of spruce-fir forest on the gorge walls give the site unusual scenic beauty.
Location: Piscataquis County, ME
Year designated: 1968
