Trail shared by Ryan Gibbs

A very boulder-filled scramble, but a fantastic ridge run.

Features Lake · Views

Baxter State Park may close the trail depending on weather conditions.

No children under 6 are permitted.

Runner Notes

Not great for trail running due to the massive amounts of boulders.

Description

This trail leaves from Chimney Pond campground. It is a short, but very steep (class II) scramble to reach Pamola Peak. This trail is almost entirely above tree line. No water available on this trail.

This run is very strenuous, but easier than Cathedral Trail (Class II/II+). The trail starts off mellow in the trees, but quickly steepens. Above treeline, you travel along a boulder field following painted markers. Hands are often required to climb over boulders, but fall potential is relatively low.

Flora & Fauna

Stay along the painted markers on the boulders and travel on durable surfaces or trail to avoid damaging fragile alpine vegetation.
