I have a section hike planned late July/early August, starting at Gulf Hagas and headed north to Katahdin. I want to leave my car at the end, I'm arranging a shuttle to the start point.
Baxter State Park told me I could leave the car at Abol bridge. Has anyone done this? Will it be (reasonably) safe there?
I've got a reservation at Katahdin Stream Campground and plan to summit the mountain. My understanding is it's a 4.5 mile hike back to Abol bridge. Not sure I'll be up for that after the climb.
Any suggestions? Has anyone done this differently?
Thanks for any advice.
