Ascent Trip Report


Drove into the end of Bear Brook Road (road is not bad) and parked.

11:53 - Dan and I depart the parking area on the logging road. We mistakenly follow the wide logging road to the left and quickly realize we are heading the wrong way. The trail turns off to the right - don't miss it.
12:10 - There is a fork to the left (flagged) that heads to Kennebage divide - we take it. There is a path for a bit, then the herd path is easy to follow. There is a lot of flagging as well.
12:43 - Summit - Kennebago Divide. Quick pics and turn around and retrace our route. When we get down to the saddle, we head left and eventually hit the ATV/trail to white cap (left).
13:07 - Back on the ATV trail to White Cap.
13:28 - Summit - White Cap. Follow the ATV trail all the way back down to the car.
14:00 - Back at the car.
