"A great day for a hike. Three great friends to good dogs. The weather was perfect for hiking. Snowshoes and creepers were used. There was some postholing nearer the top. We met the trail maintainer and the other hikers. We started from the Frye Mountain maintenance building on rt 220. Total hiking distance about 4.5 miles. Happy trails!

"4 of us went up E. Kennebago. We started on Kennebago Rd, bushwacked up to a snowmobile trail, bushwacked up to another road, then followed the town boundary line. Then bushwacked up to the summit. This second half took awhile. It was pretty steep. We followed our route out. Just shy of 7 miles round trip." - East Kennebago Mountain, newenglandwarrior, Feb 19, 2018
"Our group of 10 bushwacked over from White Cap to the boundary swath. We then went over a couple of bumps to reach the summit. From the summit, we backtracked a bit, then bushwacked over to a logging road. We followed that road, then bushwacked to our cars in the dark. Great nabbing 3 NEHH winter peaks.
