Yup - I've been itching to go for the past few years. Did it a few times back in the 90's when I lived in New England. A bit harder to get up there from NJ.

Depends on which part of ME. I'd plug in Northampton, MA into mapquest for a pretty close idea.

Adams,MA is an even better reference, the trailhead is only a mile or two out of town.

Thought I was in but that Sunday looks real busy at the household. Sat or the weekend afterward would have worked. Still working on a babysitter so there's is a very slight chance.

OK its the 25th come Hell or High Water......

A stock D90 could do it with front and rear recovery..

This is not a greenlaning event. There is the possibility of damage. I have heard reports that the rain has washed out some areas but have not confirmed.

So far Keith, Ken, Anthony, Dan, Don , Lucas...

Contact me to confirm. The trail head is in N Adams. I will get the street name or coordinates.
Cheers,

and some loud noises underneath, a front diff guard is a Really good idea too. Stock truck is going to get a number of tugs and some rock stacking to get it through and there are some tight spots where a tree could get you. Phot is me a few years ago about to come down the first obstacle, you go up this right near the beggining of the trail.
