Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: This was a last minute trip so Roaring Brook CG was booked solid so we stayed at Abol and got an early start and drove over to Roaring Brook to get a parkin spot. We had no problem, though there was a steady line of cars rolling in as we were getting ready (6:30 am).

Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: All in excellent shape. All trails blazed very well. A few minor blowdowns on Saddle below treeline. Some signage above treeline is beyond weathered and worn. Footpath on North Peaks Trail is difficult to discern in places, it’s apparent not many people venture over there. It’s too bad because there are spectacular and unique views looking back at the Knife Edge, Baxter and Hamlin Peaks.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Dogs are not allowed in Baxter SP 
Bugs: Yes but it was incredibly windy all day so they didn’t bother us!
