The bottom half of what is shown on the map is completely bogus. There is no Trail there. It depicts a Trail that is in fact running through dense regeneration after a heavy cutting of the forest. Instead, either pick up the trail down a Success Pond Road, or head downhill from the end of the forest road an pick up the trail near the Brook downhill of the end of the road. A third option is to follow a brushy, blackberry filled old skidded Trail ( the lowest one), and then drop down to the hiking trail by the stream. If you try to follow the "Trail" as shown on the AllTrails map you will get into dense regeneration thickets and waste your time at best.

For the record the turn off of ME-26 is North Road not North Pond. Also after about 5 miles on North Road it changes names to Success Pond Road.

Hike was nice at the beginning and challenging for the 2nd half. Dogs enjoyed playing in the creek for the 1st half mile or so.

Very few bugs in late August.

Pretty long and very intense! Rewarding views with a fire tower at the summit off the main trail
