Here is something Interesting taken from the 2002A.T. Thru-hikers Companion

"Known as Maine's "Second Mountain," the Bieglow Range might look very different today had it not been for the efforts of many conservation groups, including the MATC. During the 1960s and '70s, land developers had plans to turn the Bieglow Range into the "Aspen of the East," but opponents forced a state referendum on the issue. In 1976, the citizens of Maine decided by a 33,000-vote margin to have the state purchase the land and create a 33,000-acre wilderness preserve. From Stratton to Flagstaff, you will walk through what could have been a series of ski lifts, ski slopes, and summit houses."

no big deal, but according the the signs on the applachain trail at the col, west peak is actually .3 miles from the col, and Avery is .4.
