    Location: NE of Kokadjo...OR(from the east(~I-95)...north of Brownville Jct(rte ME-11)....
    15mi SW of Katahdin, T1 R12 WELS township, Piscataquis County, ME

    In the Nahmakanta Maine Public Reserved Land, ~50yds to the north of Penobscot Pond's eastern end. Logging road eventually will take you to the Black Pond Road(or Wadleigh Mtn to the east).
    You'd be surprised how much the grown up brush & hardwoods are now covering up the exact vantage point of Katahdin in the 2012 pic.

    We never hiked much back east due to ticks, mosquitoes and humidity. Since we have been in Colorado, none of that exists so we hike a lot now mostly for fitness, scenery and finding new places. Much more comfortable when there is a drier climate. After the last possible skiing is done and before it starts up, that has been our everyday of the weekend plan and use AllTrails to plan things out.

    Colorado, especially in the higher elevations, must be great for hiking, biking and jogging/walking...

    MTB still takes the wind out of me on up hill climbs though but it is nice. Lots of multiuse trails including horseback. Very dog friendly too!

    Still hiking between early season skiing days! We have been hitting some shorter hikes to visible landmarks. Good filler for now.

    Cool/Cold weather hiking is great....no mosquitoes. Those things are the axis of evil.

    We have not seen any mosquitos all summer and into fall. Too dry here.
