Directions from Greenville: Travel approximately 5.3 miles north on Route 15. Take a left on the dirt road directly across from the Forest Fire Danger level sign. (Just past the Maine Forest Service Squaw Brook Campground.) Travel a little less than a mile on this road. Look carefully for a sign on the right, which marks the trailhead. Follow the road beyond the Big Squaw trail head to the Y to the gravel pit. You will see the post headings of the trail approximately 1/2 mile from the gravel pit. Follow the trail to the edge of Little Squaw pond. Papoose Pond will be on your left. After Papoose Pond, you may follow the trail to the left which ends behind the Moose Mountain Inn or you may follow the trail to the right which will take you around Little Squaw Pond. If you continue to bear right, you will come back down between the two Squaw Ponds. At the top of the right hand turn, if you turn around, you will note a spectacular view of the south and the east. (This portion of the trail is the most difficult and should be approached only from the south to the north, unless you are a seasoned hikers. From north to south it is a very steep, uphill climb.). If you choose to follow the trail straight ahead, you will have a relatively easy hike to Little Notch Pond (approx. 25 minutes)This trail ends just beyond the pond, therefore you will have to turn around and return to the downhill trail on the left, between the Squaw Ponds to return to your starting point.
Time: This entire trip will take you between 3-½ and 4 hours depending upon your hiking speed and ability.
