Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: From ME27, near Canada, hang a left at Round Mountain Pond Rd. This is Penobscot Nation property. Follow the main road until you reach a turn around where the road is barricaded by closely spaced boulders. Park there and commence your hike.

Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: The Jeep road after the barricade on Round Mountain Pond Rd. is deeply rutted by ATVs and is filled with a lot of water. I was not able to keep my feet dry.  
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Bushwhack, herd path. The cairns mark the herdpath departures from the rutted soggy Jeep trail pretty well. I thought the herd path was much more pleasant to tread on than the soggy ATV rutted Jeep trail.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Nope 
Bugs
Bugs: The bugs were the most difficult aspect of the hike. They were relentless, bloodthirsty and supremely annoying.

Comments
Comments: Pay attention to the cairns. They mark the "trail" which is really a very well defined herd path.
