Gulf Brook Road to Boreas

Am seeking info on the Gulf Brook Road to Boreas Ponds.

Are hikers allowed to walk the road down to the ponds. If so, can someone tell me how many miles it is?

Any other relevant info would be appreciated.

Thank you.

About seven miles from Blue Ridge Road to the ponds and yes you can hike it.

Thank you for the quick reply Buckladd.

Hopefully one of the posts discusses mileage and access.

I wanted to scope it out before we paddle it.

All the best.

Hi Chris,
A friend & I backpacked in to Boreas Ponds via Gulf Brook Rd a few weeks back.
My trip report with mileages, photos, video, and other info can be found here:

Justin,

Wow - that was what I needed.

Thanks for the info.

The pics were splendid. As well as the youtube clip.

Do you know when they might open up the road for canoeists?

Thanks, Chris.
The official public land & water use classification has not been determined yet, but I don't think it would be extremely difficult to cart a canoe/kayak along the road, especially with a friend to help. The majority of elevation gain is within the first couple miles from Blue Ridge Road, and by no means steep. Pretty smooth sailing after that.
