how far is it?
can anyone tell me how many miles it is from the baxter park boundry (abol campground) to the start of the 100 mile wilderness? and is there a marker or something so you know when you are entering that area, what is the last "place" before you go into the wilderness? Thanks
Pretty dang close. Once you leave Golden Road you are there. Maybe .2 miles or something.
You cross the West Branch on the Penobscot on Aboll Bridge and the trail after the bridge almost immedieately turns south. Almost immediately you will see a sign proclaiming the so called "wilderness."
