Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Deer Hill road was open this day dry and free of snow - came in from Rte 113 side but drove the other side to Lovell which was also open. Trail head is just off Deer Hill Road on Fire Road 9A - you can see trailhead sign from Deer Hill Road. Small parking area adjacent to sign at road and snowmobile trail junction - room for a few cars. Don't expect road to be open much longer.

Comments: For those looking for an easy trek with nice views in the Evans Notch area of Maine - was snow free this day. Conant trail which is a road at this point passes over dike and a number of houses - there is a junction at 0.4 miles from trailhead for the west side which heads over Pine hill but we just did an out and back to Lord Hill - continue to follow road which becomes a bit more trail like and steeper as you proceed. At 1.1 you reach mine loop junction - we took this trail back from the top. Trails were dry with frozen ground a few minor spots of ice on ledges but easily avoided. Nice views today from the ledges today. We stopped at the mine for a quick look around (just below the view ledges and summit - turn right at the trail sign for mine loop) and then we continued down the mine loop trail back to it's junction with Conant trail. All in all a little over 4 miles, nothing steep and easy trails to follow. Trek will be a bit longer once Deer Hill Road closes but this would be an excellent snowshoe trek once there is some snow!
