Now, will Baxter peak be open or not? Dunno, I've seen Katahdin climbed in
April via the AT, and still closed into July due to snow. In 95/6/7 trails
above timberline were closed into June. In 1998, however, trails above
timberline were open allowing the first two Southbounders of AT98, Puffin and
32Flavors, to start their hikes on BSP's first weekend.
This url takes you to a site with the rules and regs. There is no official web
site for Baxter State Park. Isn't that refreshing?
I suggest calling ahead, the people at BSP are very helpful. 
See you at the second annual TrailDaysNorth!
