At 655 pm we started clearing and by 708 pm we had a pretty nice view of the valley floors as they were being lit by the sun behind the clouds. Roughly 15 minutes later though, the fog returned obscuring our vistas. Luckily though, there was at least one or two pockets of partial clearing at sunset so at least it wasn't a total loss. ...

Baxter State Park

Although blueberry season will soon come to an end, Blueberry Ledges is a beautiful trail to hike any time of the year. You can access the trail from the North, near Katahdin Stream Campground, or from the South, outside the Park near Abol Bridge. If starting from the South, the trail takes you through a beautiful White Birch forest which glows yellow in Autumn. The highlight of this trail are the smooth, granite slides and ledges located about halfway up the trail.

Although blueberry bushes are plentiful along this trail, when a Ranger hiked up earlier this week there were almost none to be found. This is due to visitors overharvesting. Blueberries are a tasty reward after your hike but please be conscious that many wild animals rely on these berries. If we gobble them all up, we leave none for them! Speaking of wild animals, who thinks they know what animal left this scat behind?

The total length of this trail is 4.4 miles and total elevation gain is approximately 800 feet.
From Katahdin Stream Campground the Ledges are 3.0 miles.
From Abol Bridge the Ledges are 1.4 miles.

Get up to see the Sword In The Stone this summer ! www.facebook.com/SecretMission4King The Guardian Knight Awaits you with a nice approach hike to a perch, a staircase climb along a ridge carved with images of their order, from 1607, and a final pitch over a roof to anchors for a swing into the Vault of the Knight's Of Christ. Vermont State Archaeologists confirmed the carvings on the waterfront leading to the mountain pass. I am working on getting a crew together to look around inside and photograph the interior for a film documentary. Anyone with Vertical Hauling/Camera Experience is encouraged to help.
