I'm working with two other hikers to plan a set of day hikes on the AT between Monson and Stratton in early August. We are planning to go southbound to give us some extra conditioning before the Bigelows. Since we will have two vehicles, we would like to shuttle ourselves as much as practical, though we recognize that some of the driving times might require hiring a driver to leave time to finish the day's hike.

There are a couple of logging road accesses between Shirley Blanchard Road (2076.4) and Moxie Pond Road (2058.0). The most notable is the logging road at 2068.7. Are they driveable by someone without local knowledge in a vehicle like a Honda CR-V? How close can you drive to the AT trailhead before having to walk the gated road mentioned in the FarOut comments?
