Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Bear Brook Road was in very rough condition early on. Lots of washouts and deep ruts. We did not drive down as far as the first two boulders. We parked about 1/4 mile before the two boulders. It is drivable beyond the two boulders. It’s up to your own risk tolerance how far down the road you want to drive.

Comments: We had a rough start to this hike just finding the herd path after the 3 mile road walk. There are huge piles of logging debri and branches which makes it hard to see the path. The weeds and grass are also thick. We started a little too far to the left. Stay to the right of the row of evergreens. Once you find the path, it is an easy hike up to White Cap. The path is very wet; water flowing down it. We used All Trails to navigate across to Kennebago Divide. we did not want to lose a lot of elevation gain, so we navigated the bushwhack that loses less elevation gain. It was a fun hike in snowy conditions. We were able to follow our footprints on the descent which made it fast.
