Home / Hiking in Maine, August 2008 / Bigelow, Avery and West Peaks, August 11 38

Met the AT after 4.6 miles, hiked west and east to West and Avery Peaks.Drove down Stratton Brook Pond Road to trailhead for Fire Warden's Trail. Nontrivial water crossing. Hiked up to the AT, then hit West Peak and back to Avery Peak. Back down Fire Warden's trail. 10.6mi, 3100'. Last part of Fire Warden's Trail is steep. Trail not generally too muddy (but runs in a stream at times.) Only a short downpour of rain, then it cleared up.
