Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: I parked at the trailhead at the drivable end of mountain road in the town of Mt. Chase. Access is as described in the maine mountain guide. the road had rough spots scattered along the 2 miles to the parking. not an issue in mid clearance awd. low clearance might have a tougher time, but likely still doable with care. there are numerous places along the road to park earlier and walk in.

Comments
Comments: the trail starts a short distance west of the parking area along a jeep road, turns right at a sign and follows a rough old jeep road to the former wardens cabin. there are numerous other roads that cross, but the trail is marked with pink ribbons and generally looks more travelled than other side roads. above the cabin the trail becomes more of a trail than a road and was very wet and slippery. the spur to eagles point is short, but has a solid, and today greasy, scramble to reach the wide open rocky top. great view to chase nearby and to baxter state park in the distance. the main trail continues up onto open rock with more fantastic views and on to the summit and old firetower site. a nice hike with a big pay off.
