Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Parking for South ridge trailhead alongside Rte 3 across from Blackwoods Campground entrance; numerous cars out today lining road for a 100 yards. Caught Uber to the start of my hike at North Ridge trailhead - lot at north ridge has room for about 10 cars and was full. Many parked on loop road at the Island explorer stop - just after bridge across rte 233 at the Cadillac mountain entrance; this area a good option as you can take the short connector to the trail head.

Comments
Comments: An easy traverse today north to south on Cadillac; for those in the area after Island Explorer service ends Uber is now available in Bar Harbor! Dean was great in picking me up on time at south ridge trailhead and delivering me quickly to the north ridge trailhead. Dry trails with LOTS of traffic heading up north ridge with les traffic heading down south ridge; summit store and bathrooms were still open with water available; Nice yellows and reds and spots with leaves all fallen but also there was still a lot green in some areas.
