AT#30 ME Kakadjo Road to Monson




Solo Hike (MIA)
September 24
Departed Midlothian VA to Shaw’s at Monson to catch shuttle at 6:30 am to Kajadjo Rd
9/25
Hiked 9 mi. to Logan Branch LT fording Pleasant River and climbing half of White Cap.
9/26
Hiked 7.2 mi to Carl Newhall LT going past White Cap, Hay Mtn, and Gulf Hagas Mtn summits. Got extremely close to female Moose near Sidney Tappan campsite.
9/27
Hiked 10 mi to Chairback LT hiking up Chairback Mtn. Tough ascending but not a deal killer. Plenty of pics!
9/28
Hiked to Long Pond LT up Third, Fourth and Barren Mtns. There were some steep ascents that reminded me of southern Maine near Gorham.
9/29
Hiked 12 miles to Stealth site 2 miles north of Wilson Valley LT ; tough and steep climbing. Before getting to the stealth site at 8:30 in the dark went wrong direction after changing for a thunderstorm thereby wasting 6 miles and 2 hours. Lost ground cover and hiking cap. Met thru hiker at tent Stealth site who lost phone fording stream. If I did not see his camp light I would have never found the site.
9/30
Hiked 9 mi to Leeman Brook LT crossing 2 fords over rocks and roots but not muddy!
10/1
Hiked 4 mi to Route 25 Monson on very foggy day going past Spectacle Pond. Thumbed a ride to Shaw’s in Monson with local doctor. Started driving home after lunch. Left my hiking shoes at Shaw’s and they shipped them back to me! Thanks Shaw’s!
