changes on the Kanc
« on: June 29, 2014, 04:35:56 PM »

couple of notes about the Kanc & Passaconaway Road:

1) there is roadwork going on between the Sabaday Falls and Champney Falls parking areas. the road goes to one lane and there is a traffic light to provide direction.

2) the Lower Falls recreation and parking area is closed. they are apparently logging up there and using it as a staging area!

3) there is logging going on on Passaconaway Road near the Johnson development. there is a quite amazing road going up the hill.

I walked that yesterday. It goes quite a ways over near the Boulder Loop area then heads east.
Seems pretty beefy for just logging but maybe that's the spec nowadays.
I was hoping to be able to drive right up to Crag Y:D

did you go to the end? I heard that it went 8 miles up there... not sure I believe that, but I'm going to ride it soon and will report back.

where I was riding today was on the other side of the road on the Kanc, up between Sabaday Falls & Champhey Falls. I was on some logging/forest roads that went probably 3 miles up into the hills. from there you could see some clearcuts across the road that were higher that we were. obviously there must be logging roads up there, but I don't know where they start - perhaps off Rob Brook somewhere. based on that I wouldn't be too surprised if that road went uo several miles.

I did go to the end.
It was probably over a mile but I'd be guessing. It appeared they were continuing on. Tons of drainage engineering and a steel bridge.
Heck of a downhill X Country ski run.

Rode the MTB up there today, 1.25 miles uphill. At one point I could see what is probably Sundown over on the left. I talked to some workers who said its ending less than .25 mile further. Pretty cool tho...

It definitely is Sundown. Last year I walked the survey lines and bushwacked over to the Boulder Loop, quite close on the left, about 3/4 up the road.

Woodchuck is quite a ways east of this road. The new road is right before the gate.

I figured that would be the case...

There are also markers on the Nanamacomoc. I think they are planning to log over in there as well!
