Follows the Hunt Trail from Abol Bridge to the top of Katahdin. That's where I plan to be on the 13th and 14th.
The trail enters the park from the southwest and aims pretty much straight to the summit. It's on the other side of the mountain from the trails leading to and from Chimney Pond.
The park authorities encourage thru-hikers to leave their full packs at the base and summit with loaner daypacks, so after I reach the top, I'll have to get back to retrieve my stuff.
For those of you who might be planning a trip to the park, please keep in touch with my mom; hopefully, I'll be able to let her know where I'm at as Katahdin gets closer!
