CAUTION: Trails in the southern portion of the park are flooded, in places to waist deep or higher

This includes trails around Abol Bridge, including approximately 3 miles of the Appalachian Trail, Abol Stream trail, and lower portions of Foss & Knowlton and Blueberry Ledges trails.
Use of these trails under these conditions is dangerous- hikers risk being caught in swiftwater at stream crossings.
The flooding is the result of water release from a dam upstream on the West Branch Penobscot River, and is expected to last until June 30th. Park staff highly recommend that hikers make alternate plans for the use of these trails until the water releases stop.
