For the hike up Katahdin I'd leave the 70-300 at the campsite or car.
But I'm sure you'll use it for moose while not on the hike.
You'll have a much better chance of seeing a moose at the surrounding ponds.

Though the weather in the northeast has been very wet and colder than usual this summer it's been pretty hot in the last few days so I'd leave the clothing decision to the morning before you ascend the mountain. But for me, I usually bring a rain jacket, fleece and rain pants even in the summer, just in case.

It's a beautiful place and I'm sure you'll get some great pics with the 9-18.

PS: I'm jealous.
