Description

This is a challenging but rewarding hike. Once on the granite slope, the hike is one continuous scenic view of the Little Androscoggin River Valley, the Oxford Hills, the White Mountains, and on clear days, the Presidential Range.

From the road, the first quarter or so of the hike is wooded and with loose rocks. The remainder of the hike is on the steep granite face of the mountain. The trail rises about 700' in its short half-mile ascent. Be especially careful of footing in wet weather when the granite becomes slick and autumn when the leaves obscure the loose uneven footing on the lower section.

All in all, the views on the journey upward are noteworthy, and become increasingly more breathtaking as more headway is made to the final destination. The summit makes the hike worthwhile, though the power lines cut into—and in turn take away from—the natural beauty of the luscious green mountain side. However, views on any side of the summit are equally stunning, and, impressive. Wild blueberry plants can be found in great numbers in various spots along the trial and at the peak. I recommend this hike.

Was a nice hike, once I actually found the trail head. I rode my bike past the head early on, and ended up riding all the way to the end of king street, having to circle back up. The marker is about 15 feet into the woods. The only discernible resemblance of a trial head from the road is a bleakly trampled pathway of dirt. Hikers beware, the marker is easily missed.

Hiked this on 10/27/17. Loved the views. It was steep, but manageable. Took about and hour and 15 to get up, then only 30 mins to get down. For a good workout do this trail for fun.

This was a very steep hike but the trail was quite nice. There were nice views on the hike up/down. I was disappointed by the view from the top. All the cell phone towers and communication lines took away from the nature and scenery that surrounds you. Overall the hike was nice for a quick afternoon adventure.

An oldie but a goodie. This short hike rewards you with great scenery at the top. The views were even better before all of the towers were put up, but the cell reception is great. ;)
