Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: After the bridge, we drove in for one mile and parked on the left. There was a well defined herd path that starts from this parking area. Path was very wet. It’s about a half mile to the border swath where you will take a right. There seems to be more than one herd path through the woods.

Comments
Comments: The bridge is damaged and it may be taken down at some point but seems to be solid enough right now. The herd path through the woods is easy to follow. Take note of where you enter the swath for the way back. Trying to use hunting blinds as landmarks can get confusing because there are so many of them. We were there on a Sunday and there is no hunting in Maine on Sundays, but wore orange as a precaution because rules can be different on Canadian side. The low areas of the swath are full of water - impossible to have dry feet. When you reach the summit, head into the woods a bit on the US side to find the nice new canister. This is a fun hike, but very steep and lots of false summits.
