Baxter State Park restricts access daily and seasonally. Permit required during winter.
The Baxter Peak Cut-off Trail bypasses Baxter Peak. It can be used to connect the Saddle Trail
to the Hunt Trail
(Appalachian Trail), and is fairly flat. It can be a nice alternate return trail to either the Hunt Trail
or the Abol Trail
from the top of Baxter. From Baxter Peak, take the Saddle Trail
down about 800 m (1/2 mile) to the trail junction, where this route jogs off to the south.
