UPDATE - Mount Pisgah in Winthrop tends to be a very busy location; consider planning your outing to a different location during the Covid-19 epidemic. If a property parking lot is full, you should consider the trail to be full. Leave home with a Plan B. If the lot is crowded, please protect your health, the health of the community, and the trails themselves, by choosing a different property.
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.
Snowmobiles permitted only on clearly-marked trails.
For more information about the land or the trails, visit the Kennebec Land Trust online, or contact:
