Ascent Trip ReportWhite Cap - Boundary (Panther) Peak - N Kennebago Divide
Drove Tim Pond Rd to Canada Rd North then crossing bridge to Wiggle Brook and driving north along (unknown logging road) to White Cap / N Kennebago Divide access. A few mud puddles and pot holes but easily driveable.
Comments: From parking we took a 4 wheeler road to the height of land on White Cap. At the height of land we began a relatively easy bushwhack North to the White Cap summit. Continued bushwhacking North through thick spruce, open hardwoods and very thick spruce to the Maine - Canada boundary swath. Followed the swath through hunter stands North - Northeast. It was extremely muddy through Denison Bog area then dried out for the ascent to Boundary / Panther Peak (between monuments 445 and 446). Returned the same way but descended into the col between White Cap and N Kennebago Divide and bushwhacked through pretty thick spruce scrub to the N Kennebago summit.
`12 miles and 7 hours round trip.
