Comments
Comments: We wanted to spot a car at Roaring Brook so while we were there we make the short trip out to Sandy Stream Pond. The trail was in good shape with a lot of bog bridges to keep your feet dry. Nice views of the pond from the several look-outs along with what would be great views of Katahdin on a nicer day. We were hopeful to see some moose in the pond but unfortunately we did not.
