Ascent Trip Report12:30 pm Parked on Route 3 just North of Upper Hadlock Pond (360’) and ran up to Bald Peak (974’) via the Parkman Mountain trail 1.6 miles in 21:30. Great view from the top of Parkman, Gilmore, Sargent, and Penobscot mountains. Dropped back down to the col (760’) and up to Parkman Mountain (941’) in 6:12. Wind was howling so I didn’t spend any time on top and dropped down .2 to the col (740’) and ascended .3 to the top of Gilmore Peak (1020’). I continued down the Grandgent trail to the waterfalls Bridge (480’). Wow, that was a nasty rocky, wet trail! From the bridge I ran up Hadlock brook trail to Birch spring trail and up to Cedar Swamp Mountain (942’). It took me 13:45 to climb up and I was down to Route 3 in a total of 1:44:16 for the 6+ mile loop.
