Kidney Pond bridge construction
- Kidney Pond bridge
Crews are now building out the approaches to the new Kidney Pond bridge abutments location. On WEDNESDAY, JULY 23, the bridge will be moved to the new location.
Access to and from Kidney Pond Campground will not be available after 9am on the 23rd until the bridge move is completed, hopefully by early afternoon. Visitors should expect traffic delays on the Park Tote Road on Tuesday morning and Wednesday afternoon when two cranes are moved in and out for the bridge move.
New Wassataquoik Lake Leanto!
- Wass Lake Lookout
We are pleased to announce the opening of the new Wassataquoik Lake Leanto! This brand new 4-person leanto on a very nice site is in the heart of the Park wilderness. The leanto is located on the small point on the right side of Wassataquoik Lake in the photo below. The leanto is 3.8 miles from Russell Pond, 5.9 miles from the Center Pond leanto and 10.5 miles from the Park Tote Road at Nesowadnehunk Field. In addition to the new leanto, the former leanto site at Little Wassataquoik Lake has been converted to a tentsite, for those who prefer to carry their house.
Notice to Hikers:
Due to landslide activity and unstable rocks and debris, the Abol Trail is closed for the 2014 season.
