"A little-traveled woods walk along Hunters Brook takes you up the Triad, a 698-foot peak with limited views of the Cranberry Isles to the south, beyond Day Mountain. You may even see the elusive spruce grouse. From the Park Loop Road, the trail starts out relatively flat along Hunters Brook. After a couple of brook crossings, the trail turns sharply left (west) just before crossing a carriage road at 1.4 miles.
The trail begins a sometimes steep climb toward the Triad, with sheer rock face in some areas. The woods here are so little traveled, don’t be surprised if you come across a spruce grouse, as we did one spring. The bird is so uncommon, it can’t be hunted in the state of Maine. And it’s so well camouflaged and able to stay motionless for stretches at a time, it’s easy to miss if you don’t look about you. At 1.8 miles reach the junction with the Triad and Pemetic East Cliff Trails, both once known as the Pemetic Mountain Trail. Turn left (south) on the Triad Trail, and reach the summit at 1.9 miles."
