Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: SPREAD THE WORD - PARKING IS ALLOWED at the CMT trail head on Bangor Street - as long as you are 15 feet from the hydrant and not on anyone’s property or blocking their driveway. I stopped in at the GORHAM POLICE DEPARTMENT and asked. So when anyone comes out and tells you that you cannot park there, as long as you are following the rules listed above, you can park there and you will not get a ticket.

Comments: Bare trail for the first 2.6 miles. Intermittent decaying mini-monorail and bare patches 2.6 to 2.8 miles. Mostly consistent narrowish monorail 2.8 to about 4/10ths before the summit then no elevated monorail to speak of - just packed snow. I went early so conditions were firm for light traction. The monorail areas were deteriorating after 10 am and softer than when I started. The ledges were all bare and 99% dry today.
