Baxter State Park Target OPENING is May 11th!

Spoke to a official BSP Ranger a couple of days ago - GREAT news! They are shooting for a May 11th opening date. What part of the park? Not sure yet - what roads? Unsure again - not the mountain yet - thats pretty much assured! But parts of the Tote Road - the road that goes directly thru the park should be opening. Perhaps part of the road that goes to the Sandy Stream Pond parking lot. Limited hiking still too....will post an update in a couple of weeks when we get another direct update! THINK SPRING!

We have lost well over HALF of our snowpack in the last 10 days - no kidding - and what a relief. Still too much snow for climbing for quite a while still (Katahdin!). In town Milli has 70-75% bare ground everywhere - obviously the drifts/banks still have snow piles. Up on the BSP Road into the Togue Pond park entrance is getting bare about everywhere finally. Just a lot of soggy ground still for hiking but getting better quickly. Another 7-10 days is going to make a world of difference. Nice to meet you, Happy Easter!
