East Kennebago

Hiked East Kennebago on 10/14/2016 with Bill and Diane Schor. The weather was quite cool in the morning (34) with a few clouds but it cleared up very nicely. We were on the trail before 8 as Diane needed to get home to bake a Whoopee Pie cake. Again we followed almost 5 miles of pretty rough logging roads to get to the start of the hike.

We followed an ATV trail for about a mile before turning on to a herd path for the half mile climb to the summit. The path was steep in a few places but not too bad and far better than having to bushwhack through the fairly thick woods.

It was moose hunting season so Bill had some orange on, Diane and I had forgotten our orange colors. We reached the summit after only an hour and 20 minutes of hiking.

This was Bills final summit for completing the New England 100 Highest peaks, congratulations to him. I only need 20 more peaks to finish the New England 100 Highest. We ate our PBJs in the car on the long drive home.
