Baxter Delays Open 

Heavy snow and the recent rain have caused soft roads and washouts on the unpaved Park Tote Road.

The Tote Road is open from the Togue Pond Gate to the foot of Abol Hill, and from Matagamon Gate to South Branch Pond Campground.

The campgrounds at Trout Brook Farm and South Branch Pond will open as scheduled on Thursday. But all other Baxter campgrounds wont be open until May 19th.

The exception is Roaring Brook, which won’t open until May 23rd.

All trails to Baxter Peak are still closed, though park staffers are evaluating them daily.
