This hiking trail starts from an unmarked trailhead but is well-defined and easy to spot from Plummer Hill Road. The trail climbs steeply for 0.5 miles before reaching a rock ledge lookout over Keoka Lake. From here, the trail ascends more moderately for 0.1 miles and finally reaches the granite ledges of the summit. Despite trees, there are fantastic views that open up from the east to the south. A large glacial erratic, known as 'The Bear Cave' lies hidden within the trees behind the summit. A deep cleft runs through the boulder and there are small caves to explore.
Trail erosion is a concern on the trail; foot traffic only please.

From the junction of ME-35 and ME-37 in Waterford: travel 500 feet south on ME-35/37 and then turn right onto Plummer Hill Road. The trailhead is a short distance past the Congregational Church on the left. There is space for four cars on the roadside pullout near the trailhead. If these spaces are full, please park at the Congregational Church and walk to the trailhead.
