From ME 105 in Somerville, go north 3.0 miles to a right (east) turn onto Gore Road. Pass fish hatchery at 3.4 miles, bear right at 4.0 miles, cross Dead Water Slough on wooden bridge at 4.7 miles, make sharp right onto dirt road at 6.1 miles. The road is OK for passenger cars for another 0.3 miles.

Hike up the jeep road to the large open area shown on the topo. I worked my way along the top of the cleared area to cover the liner. The area near a hunting cabin looked highest. There's a stone wall along the field edge which may well mark the county line. The area is planted with blueberries, so I could not wander much to look for the tri-county marker. The road leading up the hill is posted at the 6.1 mile point, but there are signs further uphill requesting hunters to "ask permission" and imploring visitors to stay out of the blueberry fields. My impression is that the posting at the bottom of the hill is low level, and that visitors are probably going to be OK. I saw no one during my visit.
