5/23/10 Woodchuck Hill

Went with some friends to check out the trail as a candidate for a hike they lead. We parked at Fitts Pond and walked through the scout camp to the Blue and Gold Trail which is an easy hike through the wood, past Snowshoe Pond and then to the road. Across the road the trail begins to climb and is quite steep in parts with large rocks and, in one spot, ladders. This section is not manageable by Kelley so we bushwhacked around it. My friends did likewise but thought next time they might prefer the ladders.

It was not long before we began to get views through the trees

At the top we had a snack and then descended on a much easier trail than the one we had come up- a pretty woods walk. That trail ended at the road next to the gate for Bangor water works and we walked back to where we had previousely crossed the road near Snowshoe Pond

and took the Blue and Gold back the way we had come.

  1. That looks like George and Gail!
    That view of the mountains with Snowshoe Pond is one of my favorites.
    What an asset the camp and all those trails are.
