Description

In the northern tip of North Berwick lies Bauneg Beg Mountain Conservation Area, consisting of 89 wooded acres with two miles peaceful trails, surprising rock formations and a panoramic view. A network of trails winds through deciduous forests, beech and pine groves, and through a large boulder section known as Devil’s Den before coming out to Middle Peak and a 180 degree view to the north.

This is an excellent family hiking spot in all seasons. Bauneg Beg Mountain has three peaks, the highest of which is 866’ – higher than Mt. Agamenticus. The hike up is about a half-hour walk, and there is a choice of longer or steeper routes to the top. Another trail links Middle Peak and Bauneg Beg Road. Children six and up love to scramble up the Devil’s Den and climb a “real” mountain.
