    An up-and-over with a full pack (and 10 days food) isn't recommended.
    Drive around to the west side, go up Hunt and down Abol with a day pack.

    You can't stay at the Birches. it's for Nobos hiking in from at least Monson.
    Do you and you friends will need camping or parking reservations.

    It'd make sense to stop there.
    20 mile day tomorrow. 9+ to Katahdin Stream, 10.4 up and down Katahdin.
    Here's wishing him the best.

    Here's another option: Have two or three people night hike the AT from Abol Bridge to Katahdin Stream and set up at one of the covered picnic tables to meet him with what they've carried in.

    They'll need to be at the gate by 4AM since they don't have a parking pass. They may have to wait until 7, an hour after the gate opens, to see if someone with a parking pass didn't show up.

    All Katahdin and Traveler trails still closed.

    The Tote Road is closed between Trout Brook Farm and Foster Field.
