Beautiful view, pretty steep incline but worth it!

Not a bad hike. Great for a short hike with a decent view. There really isn't any trail ending per se.

Pretty easy trail with some great views. I've hiked this a couple times with my daughter when she was 3 and now that she's 4. It's challenging enough to keep her interest and the views at the top are rewarding. A tip - at the top there is a pretty good lookout overlooking Crescent Lake to the east. If you keep going on the trail through the woods (it's probably about another 3/4 of a mile), there is another lookout that overlooks Panther Pond, Thomas Pond, and Sebago Lake to the south. I missed this the first two times hiking this mountain, but my daughter was feeling adventurous the last time and we discovered this lookout. It was well worth the extra trek through the woods, especially considering we had the view to ourselves. On the way to the second lookout, there's a side trail to the right where you can see Mt. Washington just over the trees. It's not much of a view, but the side trail is probably about 100 yards long, so it's worth checking out.

The trail is mostly uphill and very rocky at times. Its an easy path to follow and the view before you get to the top is breathtaking

This place has beauty all of it's own. It was a very peace hike , with a nice tree lined path . With a view at the top to take your breath away.

Easy trail, short out and back. Great for dogs! Good view from upper lookout, but summit is trees.

Hiked this trail today and had a fabulous time. No issues with being misled on the trails, the weather was beautiful, the hike was perfect and the view was fantastic. We will definitely do this again soon. Rocks and trees are marked with blue paint, there are a few red arrows and if a trail has a tree across it, don't take it. :)
