Description

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.

Flora & Fauna

Table land has rare and delicate vegetation. Please stay on marked trails.
