Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: From Rangeley follow Rt 16 for 10 miles and Bridge rd will be an unmarked dirt road on the left. You'll pass over the bridge pretty quickly-turn right once over. At the fork with multiple signs, bear right and follow as far as you are comfortable in your vehicle. If you have decent clearance you can drive all the way to the parking area at the start of the ATV trail. We met someone with a Subaru Outback who drove all the way to the ATV trail, but in our VW wagon we didn't have enough clearance to do this safely. Tons of boulders, rocks and holes where the car can bottom out. Because we parked in a large grassy area just before the road seemed to get treacherous (had some ok areas further up) it added approx 3 miles of road walk round trip to the hike.

Comments: Herd path from Bridge Road

At the large parking are where the ATV trail starts, follow this until you reach a herd path on the left which is marked with arrows on the ground and a tall yellow wooden marker/stake in the ground. Follow the well defined herd path ascent to the summit. Total hike with road walk was approx 6 miles round trip.
