Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Plenty of parking at the Reel Brook TH - no other cars there all day! On the other hand, the drive in on Reel Brook Road is pretty challenging - a few ruts and washouts - the worst part is the short spur to the parking lot - really big rocks. Make sure your car has clearance before or it *will* have clearance after!!!

Comments: Nice day for this AT segment. Beautiful new (2010) Eliza Brook Shelter - wow!!! Great views from S Kinsman, as usual. Saw a few people on the ridge - some pretty tired! Great day! I had forgotten how nice the Reel Brook Trail is!
