Pillsbury Mountain Parking

Does anyone know if the Pillsbury parking area is accessible yet?

Based on the trip reports I've been hearing, there may be a foot of snow in the area.

That coupled with the road to the TH being a potholed mess, it's probably not accessible by a typical wheeled vehicle yet.

I can't say for sure, this is just speculation. I bet the road will be a melted muddy mess in a couple weeks though.

Not open

We're still ice fishing up there. Loads of snow this year.

Could probably walk the roads. It might be like going to Allen Mt, an all day trip, but possible.

Yeah I know I could walk em, I really wanted to get into Sampson lake but I think itís just gonna have to wait until the snow clears. I adopted the Sampson lake lean to, itíll be my first time adopting a lean to and I just got so pumped up when I found out I won it that I wanted to get in there and check it out immediately lol

I hope you're a fan of pots and frying pans. The Sampson Lake Lean-to is in no short supply of them.

Yeah I read a horror story about the Sampson Lake lean to from 2005 on this forum. It mentioned the crazy amounts of garbage and filth that the lean to accumulated. I fully anticipate that itíll be a lot of work to keep up on it, especially considering the distance from the trailhead, making packing everything out a little more challenging. But I live relatively close by so I am really hoping to make many trips there. Bonus will of course be exploring the west Canada lakes wilderness on my way to and fro!

Thanks for maintaining that leanto, it provided much needed respite for my son and I from a pretty hard rain last year while doing the French Louis Loop.

Unfortunately, it was kind of messy when we went. Mostly trash in the fire pit right in front of it, I don't know if it was fly in fishermen, but some was kind of weird stuff that most backpackers wouldn't pack in like 3 gallon water jugs, and then empty mono filament reels. Definitely not insurmountable, just needs a little love. Definitely a very nice area.

Likewise, I've just adopted a trail (NPT near Stephen's Pond) and am looking forward to getting out there too.
