Baker Stream Trail South to The Ledges
This beautiful section of the Appalachian Trail begins at Baker Stream, follows the Troutdale Road for a short distance, then enters the woods as it heads south to the summit of Pleasant Pond Mountain. “The Ledges” is a beautiful overlook of Moxie Pond about halfway to the summit of the mountain. There are other great views and some ‘old growth’ conifer forests.
This section will need regular attention as it gets occasional winter damage and, of course, the ever-present brush growth. Erosion and other water issues are not generally an issue in this section. Applicants should be willing to commit to making at least 3 trips per season: spring, summer, and fall to clear blowdowns, clip brush, and refresh the white blazes as needed.
Access is simple as parking is available on Troutdale Road or in an AT parking lot at the northeast end of the section.
