From Rangeley, follow Route 4 south for 4.5 miles. Turn right on to Edelheid Road and proceed about a half mile to utility pole #13. The trailhead is on the right. Park along the road.
The trail (red blazed) begins with a gentle climb up a wooded hillside. Upon reaching a gravel road, the trail doglegs right for about 100 yards along the road, then turns left and re-enters the woods again. Follow the trail up through the woods and into a coniferous forest. The trail turns right, climbs along a wooded ridge, and descends to the shore of Mountain Pond.
This trail crosses privately owned land and is open to the public through the generosity of the landowner. Please respect trail and land to ensure that the trail can remain open for public use; stay on the established trail, carry out all trash, follow instructions on signage, and do not disturb plants or wildlife. Thank you for doing your part to keep this land available for public use.
Trail maintained by TRAC volunteers.

Plan Ahead and Prepare
Know your limits – it’s okay to turn back. Your home is the ultimate destination, not the summit.
