New Wassataquoik Lake Leanto!

Blank
Wass Lake Lookout

We are pleased to announce the opening of the new Wassataquoik Lake Leanto! This brand new 4-person leanto on a very nice site is in the heart of the Park wilderness. The leanto is located on the small point on the right side of Wassataquoik Lake in the photo below. The leanto is 3.8 miles from Russell Pond, 5.9 miles from the Center Pond leanto and 10.5 miles from the Park Tote Road at Nesowadnehunk Field. In addition to the new leanto, the former leanto site at Little Wassataquoik Lake has been converted to a tentsite, for those who prefer to carry their house.



Notice to Hikers:

Due to landslide activity and unstable rocks and debris, the Abol Trail is closed for the 2014 season.
