Glassface Ledges Trail

A short, moderately strenuous hike through lowland forest ending at a rocky outcrop with a spectacular view of the Androscoggin River valley.
Trail Activity
1.6 miles, Round Trip
Dirt/Forest Floor, Rock/Ledge


Begin the hike by walking on the grass path through the center of the cemetery. Off to the right at the back of the field is a small sign marking the trailhead. The trail meanders through lowland forest. The trail has boardwalks and water bars at major wet areas, but small spots are muddy. As you climb, the trail changes from dirt to boulders and well-placed steps. The trail ends at a rocky outcrop with a beautiful view of the farms and woodlands of the Androscoggin River valley.

I didn't get the exact distance but it seemed a bit further than 1.6 round trip, it might be closer to 1.6 one way. The trail is steeper than you'd think and easy to follow but I tried to follow a rock face once - so just double check you are going where you intended to. No one else was there, the view was beautiful and had a perfect hammocking spot at the terminus which I took advantage of

Bring snowshoes! We had to break trail in hiking boots only and it was really tough! View is really pretty when river is like a mirror in the fall. We went in the fall and in the winter.

Steep and icy but a great view from the ledge

I'm fairly certain that there is an additional trail from Andover road that goes to the summit.

Between the rain from the day before and all the fallen leaves there were some slippery spots near the end, but it was doable even with my kids. What a gorgeous view! Glad we decided to go and will likely go again once things turn green.
