Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: To access Berry Picker's you must travel 3.1 miles on a gravel road off of Reeds Mill Rd. This road has deteriorated significantly in sections. I made it in a high clearance vehicle with two wheel drive but just barely. Had there been any rain, I would not have made it. Therefore I recommend a high clearance 4 wheel drive vehicle for this road, until the next rain storm. Then the road will likely become impassable.

Comments: See road access notes.

Berry Pickers Trail is well maintained, well blazed in blue. I will be searching for an alternate access point. Maybe the Fly Rod Crosby trail connects to Reeds Mill further down the road...

The AT is blazed in standard white blazes. All signs are up. The summit sign is showing quite a bit of wear but remains legeible.
