Hiked Snow (Chain of Ponds) on 10/13/2016 with Bill and Diane Schor. This is another peak in far northern Maine near the Canadian border. We drove up in the morning so didn’t get started hiking until 10:45. The weather was good with showers predicted in late afternoon. We followed logging roads for about 5 miles to get to the start of the hike.
We followed logging roads for quite a while with specific directions on where to turn. Fortunately it has been dry for quite a while as there looked to be the potential for a lot of mud in quite a few places.
The herd path to the summit was in very good shape and probably better than some of the maintained trails in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. We ate our PBJs here since we had gotten a late start.
We reached the summit pretty quickly and were surprised by the amount of artifacts on the summit.
The land is owned by the Penobscot Indian tribe and I assume they are responsible for any maintenance that needs to be done. We made our way back to the car and drove to Stratton where we were spending the night. The showers held off until after we were at the motel. Only 21 peaks left to finish the New England 100 Highest. Bill only needs 1.
