Leave the east side of ME Route 113 near the Evans Brook Bridge, north of Hastings Campground. Follow the trail up moderate to steep grades about 0.5 miles to an open ridge called the Roost. Follow the link down hill for a short distance to open ledges with excellent views of the Wild River Valley and many mountain peaks. From the Roost, continue south along a more gradual grade until the trail reaches ME Route 113 on the south side of Hastings Campground. Distance back to the starting point is about 0.6 miles along the road.
ME-113 is closed during winter starting approximately one mile north of the trailhead.
