Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Plenty of space late in the day. We arrived around 4:45pm and left around 6:15pm. Note that it’s $6/person if not a Maine resident. $12 felt like a lot to spend for an hour and a half of hiking 😜

Water Crossing Notes: None 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Northern Loop Trail is blazed in blue, Boundary Trail is blazed in red, and Summit Trail is blazed in white. All trails were well blazed and signed. I don’t recall any blowdowns either. The bench shortly after the Bradbury to Pineland Corridor Trail has seen better days.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Pets must be leashed in the park or you will be asked to leave. We saw a couple that followed this rule. The trails should be fine for dogs.  
Bugs
Bugs: We didn’t notice any surprisingly. Perhaps this was because we used DEET at the car.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: None 
 
Comments
Comments: Did a little loop around Bradbury Mtn. A couple mountain bikers passed us on either Northern Loop Trail or Boundary Trail. There’s a lot of mountain bikers around this area. Saw a couple at the summit ledges too. We only saw a few others a couple of which were trail runners. Not at al crowded. The trails were well marked and very dry save some minor mud on occasion. There’s one tricky sharp right turn on Boundary Trail. It’s marked by double red blaze but the those unfamiliar with the meaning of double blaze will continue past it on the connecting trail rather than turn sharply there. Also, according to Gaia which I think is correct here, we took the first left on a connecting trail so now I need to go back and do it the proper way...oops. We did the loop counterclockwise, as the guidebook describes. The trails are well maintained and easy to follow.
