View Full Version : East Turner Mountain

When bushwhacking to East Turner Mountain in Baxter State Park, has anyone approached by making a beeline from Sandy Stream Pond? It seems this route would stay low enough for a decent amount of the way that it would be easier than trying to cut across the scrappy ridge from South Turner. Or is it far more preferable to use the eastern approach to this peak?

I had always thought I would try your route, but being able to drive to within a mile from the E and also avoiding the BSP fee made me change my mind. I think I asked TA/S if they thought of coming back low and they thought the going was better up high. - delete last sentence if they deny it
