Greetings one and all- Here is the information that you will need for this week-end’s hike. Nothing different from most of our hikes EXCEPT you will need to bring a bag lunch.
When: Saturday, April 28th
Where: Partridge and Ducktail Ponds, Amherst, ME.
WE WILL MEET AT THE PARTRIDGE POND TRAIL HEAD
Start Time: 10 am at the Partridge Pond Trail Head
(be there a couple minutes early, please!)
Finish Time: approximately 2 pm
- bag lunch
- trail snacks
- weather appropriate clothing (we suggest bringing a sweat shirt or light jacket)
- An extra pair of dry socks

Go approximately 22 miles from the traffic light at the intersection of Route 9 and State Street in Brewer.
Ducktail Pond Road is on the left 1.5 miles before the intersection of Route 9 and Route 181 in Amherst.
(8 miles beyond the turn-off for Crossroads Camp.)
A short distance down Ducktail Pond Road (a gravel road), you will come to a group of three large signs on the right. One of the signs gives the mileage to the different trail heads in Amherst Mountains Community Forest: Partridge Pond Trail head is 1.6 miles; Ducktail Pond trail head and Indian Camp Stream Day Use Area are 2.4 miles; and the Bald Bluff Mountain trail head is 5.9 miles.
We will meet at the PARTRIDGE POND TRAIL HEAD. There is parking at the trail head.
