Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Drove Tim Pond to four corners, parked at four corners, no major issues going in as road was frozen. Road is a snowmobile trail, plowed to Tea Pond camps, next 11 miles mud, packed snow and ice. Deteriorating with warm temps, lucky to get out, difficulty with hill going out, too much snow. Unless you get freezing temps, DON’T go in. 4 wheel drive must, which we had, we sunk about 6 to 8 inches trying to get out, PRAYING we would get out!

Comments: Roads not plowed but this allowed snowmobiling to take place on roads, at old summer parking on Bear Brook, we went to right on herd path where road ended, broke trail to NK using gps, then return with shortcut to WC breaking new trail, going to WC we followed herd path BUT went past, two of us had been there a couple times in 3 season and couldn’t believe herd path didn’t take us to summit. When trail splits, stay left. GPS needed to make things quicker. Returned on our tracks and on road to our truck and a white knuckle 17 mile drive to civilization! 2 to 3 feet on summits. On large racked moose st wiggle Brook and four large moose going in on Tim Pond.
