Comments
Comments: Since my last visit in July, there has been a significant amount of flagging, starting on the upper ATV trail and continuing on the trail proper. Where the trail leaves the road at the height-of-land is now heavily flagged and several balsams which had been obscuring the jump-off point for the trail have been cut.

The super summit views from the Bigelows to the President Range justify the travel distance to this peak. I had forgotten how dark the boreal forest can be after 3 PM in late Fall !
