Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Drive in was a long 18.6 miles on fairly well graded gravel roads. Turn right off Rt. 16 on to Morton's Cutoff (when heading west from Rangeley) and drive 3.1 miles, then turn right and drive 7.6 miles on Tim Pond Road/Lincoln Pond Road, cross bridge over river to the four-way intersection of Kennebago Kamps, turn left (north) on Kennegbago River Road and drive 3.2 miles then turn left onto Wiggle Brook Road, cross over bridge and drive 4.3 miles. Finally turn left and drive up the logging road for .4 miles. Beyond this can be quite wet with little room to park or turn around. We noticed some evidence of tree cutting and/or thinning to the right of the parking area.

Comments
Comments: Previous reports seem a little vague on this hike so here are a few more details particularly at the beginning. After parking continue on the logging road for .3 miles. Turn left here. There should be a cairn there signifying the turn. Hike another .7 miles on this logging/skeeter path. You should then see another cairn. Take a right here and proceed about 100 feet to another cairn where you should turn left on to a herd path that is pretty easy to follow to the summit. Total hike shouldn't take more than a couple hours and is good to do on your trip to the area.
