Looking up the Shelburne Trail
Route: Shelburne Trail, bushwhack
First part of the Shelburne Trail was a gravel road walk, followed by a regular trail. From the col, we followed the ridge, occasionally picking up the abandoned Kenduskeag Trail segment. Some boggy areas, some ledgy areas with cairns.
Excellent views from the ledges at and around the summit of Howe Peak. Plenty of black flies too.

Directions to trailhead: Take US 2 east from Gorham and the Appalachian Trail. The forest road leading to the Shelburne Trail will eventually be on the right with a hiker sign. There is a small parking lot at the trailhead gate.
