Description

The fire tower allows visitors to view Mt. Washington and the Camden Hills on a clear day. The trails are moderately difficult, including some elevation gain through a conifer-hardwood forest that includes many old sugar maples. Blueberry picking was popular along the Blueberry Trail until the forest grew in around the fields, but the Kennebec Land Trust is working to rejuvenate the blueberry fields so that hikers can enjoy a sweet treat during the later summer months. The Mount Pisgah Conservation Area contains 800 acres of permanently conserved land, including 94 acres called the Mount Pisgah Fire Tower property, which is owned by the town of Winthrop.

Other Information

Snowmobiles permitted only on clearly-marked trails.

This place is great. Very obvious why it's such a popular spot. It was still pretty busy in the middle of the week fyi.
They also added the Ledges trail. I attached a current map under the pictures for this trail.
These awesome businesses support our goal of connecting people to outdoor adventures in Maine!
