Hi all this is a bucket list hike for me, but wanted to share the hike with you all. Helon Taylor, Knife Edge, Saddle, and Chimney Pond Trail on AllTrails https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/maine/helon-taylor-knife-edge-saddle-and-chimney-pond-trail We are looking at a 9.8 mile hike with pushing at 4,000 feet in elevation gain. My plan is June 7th get to camp meet up and rest well. June 8th be on trail for 630/700am. Plan on a 10 to 12 hr hike. Bring a head lamp with you just in case. Be back at the camp site around 7pm, sleep there then depart on June 9th after breakfast. This is backcountry camping. Except for the part that you drive you car there, it's just like camping in the wood, even the water isnt safe unless you filter/treat it. The only camp site that was left is a group site and can hold up to 9 other ppl. So I am asking for $10 a head per a night, as I paid the full cost up front for both nights. There is also a gate entrance fee that is $16 per a car load. The gate entrance fee is something that you will need to go https://reservation.baxterstatepark.org/reserve/passes and buy before making the drive out. I'll ask for the camping money in person at the site. Hope to see u there. :)
Directions To Trailhead Parking Lot
