My time off falls on Monday and Tuesday I live in Salem, NH. I am heading up in the morning and returning Tuesday afternoon this week. Probably too short a notice this week but keep it in mind it for another time.

There's many groups that ride out of Jackman including ours that would welcome somebody looking to broaden their horizons. Also, places offer guided tours such as Northern Outdoors in the Forks, Dana's Rental's & Cedar Ridge Outfitters in Jackman and more...for short money.

Love it up there! going up the back side is even funner! (Long track recommended) Pic is from last year but planning on getting up there soon! I've been up there when its so clear you can see Sugarloaf, Baxter Park etc...

If you can ever figure it out.. I would recommend Boundary Bald Mt. North of Jackman. Not easy to find nor get to the top.. Only have made it twice.

Anyone ever been up Pisgah on the Canadian border ? West of Jackman and Coburn. US side is a good ride, just dodge the moose huts

The Canadians come up on their side. Never been that way. There is a trail up the face between US and Canada that I saw 1 guy make it on an RMK. The Canadians were hooting and hollering by their fire when we heard the sled. He failed on his first attempt, but made it on the second. Looking down where he came up, I couldn't believe he made it.

Were you on the Upper or Lower Enchanted side of the mountain?
