Comments: We spotted a car at York Pond Rd and drove over to Starr King for a nice hike up Starr King and over to Waumbek. I'd done this hike several times in summer and winter and knew what to expect.

The section from Waumbek to the Week was unknown to me and I'd always wanted to hike it. The first section to South Weeks was very easy to follow and really nice. The next section to Middle Weeks was also very easy to follow and not that difficult. Here we found the full skeleton of a female moose, looked to be pretty young from the teeth. Carcass was all over the place and still smelled pretty bad. North Weeks seemed more difficult then we had a descent down into a notch where we saw the first trail sign since Waumbek, the York Pond Trail. We decided to call it a day and set up camp here. Windy but nice day and night
