BANGOR, Maine (AP) — At least 60 percent of Baxter State Park’s trails and roads are opening for the season, as park workers fix road washouts and await the drying out of other areas due to heavy snow and rain.

Park Director Jensen Bissell says the park is opening Friday. It’s usually open by May 15, but cold, wet weather hasn’t melted the snow.

The Bangor Daily News reports among the features park visitors can expect to be open are the Trout Brook Farm campground and portions of 45-mile-long Park Tote Road; the Russell Pond campground; and Abol, Katahdin Stream, Daicey Pond, Kidney Pond, Russell Pond and South Branch Pond campgrounds.
