This loop hike runs along the shore of scenic Lake Sebago and follows the cascading Stony Brook

41.179887, -74.163916

NOTE:  Two bridges (crossing Pine Meadow Brook and Stony Brook) towards the end of the hike are out.  Until these bridges are replaced (which will not occur until sometime in 2021 at the earliest), the route of the hike cannot be completed, and you should choose a different hike.

At the northeastern end of the cul-de-sac, you will find the start of the White Bar Trail...

Bridge of Stony Brook
Bridge is still out, however, you can just continue along the yellow trail which eventually merges with the red trail and ends up at the Reeves Meadow Parking lot.  From there, it's an easy half mile walk up Seven Lakes Drive (make a right out of the Reeves Meadow Parking lot) back to your car in the cul-de-sac where you parked to start the hike.  Follow Seven Lakes Drive up about .5 miles to the pipeline and make a left and follow the pipeline cut out (steep descent) right to your car in the cul-de-sac.  You don't need to cross any streams or creeks.  Another tip - when you reach the intersection of the White Bar and TMI trail at the beginning of your hike, it's an easy detour to just continue on the White Bar for 1/10th of a mile to check out the Dutch Doctor shelter and then backtrack to TMI and continue as originally planned.

Bridge has not yet been replaced
The Kakiat Trail bridge over Stony Brook has not yet been replaced.  My understanding is that the Park has not yet authorized the Trail Conference to build a new bridge for the Kakiat Trail, and it also has not yet determined the exact location of the new bridge.  Until agreement has been reached on the location of the bridge and the Trail Conference has been authorized to build it, work on its replacement cannot proceed.

Has the bridge been replaced?
Or is there a place nearby that is possible to cross the stream?
