Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Parking area (on Meadow Brook Road - accessed approx. 13 miles north of Greenville) is 300 ft. to the north of the TH (just after a small bridge over Lagoon Brook). Easy to find. Room for 4-5 cars. Note that the otherwise excellent signage upon entering Meadow Brook Road says "3 miles". It is exactly 4 miles to the parking lot. Road is good but there are pot-holes, protruding rocks and a couple of culverts which are beginning to wash out.

Dog-Related Notes: Excellent trail for dogs and Brandy had a fine time. Other than a small stream just at the beginning of the Number Four Mountain there is no water.

Comments
Comments: The best description we could find is on Mainetrails.com. It is clear and accurate.

The Baker Mountain trail is a super-nice walk on a bed of pine-needles almost the entire way.

The junction with the snomo corridor (described in various reports and documents) is obvious and well-marked. It means a turn to the left (east) for ~150 ft. and then a turn to the right (south) when heading towards Baker. Signage at both turns. Trails north of this junction are blazed in blue. The route to the south is marked with red diamonds all the way to the top. Very easy to follow.

There are canisters on both summits.
