Josh Pond, near Machias Maine

Does anyone know the current status / accessibility of Josh Pond, near Machias, Maine? This is trip #33 in Hayes and Wilson’s Quiet Water Maine, 2nd Edition (2005). They note that the entire shoreline was for sale at the time of writing. I’m hoping to do the 10-mile trip from Sunken Lake to Chase Mills, as described in AMC River Guide, 2nd Edition. Wondering whether it’s still possible to connect through Josh Pond. Any advice appreciated.
