|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||In Kingfield, we drove West Kingfield road to Blanchard Hill road to Day Pond Rd. We followed the extending road that heads north up the Adler Brook. We were able to take this up to a point a few hundred feet below the col. The roads were not issue for bryan's Subaru, though he had to use a bit of care in spots, especially one washout. |

|Lost and Found:
||We worked our way up to the col between Owl's Head and the minor bump to the south. Woods were low regrowth and very old skid paths. Near the col, we turned and worked towards the peak. Going was mainly good with some thick spots. We were rewarded with very nice views at the open ledge/scree summit. The recognized highpoint is a stone's throw into the trees from the viewpoint. |
We returned to the col and worked along the ridge and up to Black Nubble. Woods were good with skid roads to help, but some challenging regrowth. We found the recognized summit, which had been visited on the 28th. We returned to the col and followed a very nice road down. The road was mainly clear, save for a section of old dry slash. This made very good walking to where it connected to the south fork of the road we parked on. We walked the short distance to bryan's car.
Thanks bryan for connecting for this one; proved to be great access to some cool trail-less ME peaks.
