Old stone tower at summit, view of Sebago Lake. First 4/10ths of a mile is on paved road (almost 1/2 of hike is on pavement). It is steep. You have to park down in a side parking lot. This is an easy hike due to short length but a moderate hike due to slope. Can be very slippery when wet or icy.
There is nowhere on this mountain that states "no dogs". There is even a sign that states "please clean up after yourself and your pets". Just so you guys know! :) lovely hike, one of my favorites.
First hike up here with the family tribe... up the orange trail to the stone tower, then down opposite side following the yellow trail. Beautiful views of Sebago lake and distant surrounding mountains.
If you want more time in the woods and to extend it out, can easily double back down the orange trail.
Just want to let people know that dogs are not allowed on this trail. The Maine trail site and the Town of Sebago site both show it as no pets.
I took my great niece and nephew here for one of their first hikes. They loved it. The trail is somewhat steep, which made us all sweat during the hike up, but it's short enough that it was just the right distance for small kids. They really enjoyed the stone tower at the top where we could see for miles and miles, looking at all of the surrounding lakes and mountains. We took the ledges trail on the way down; it's short and easy with a few steep spots.
My family has a lake house on Sebago that we frequent in the summers. I found this trail and we took the the dogs after breakfast on a not so great beach day. It was a perfect activity to get up and move for about an hour! And awesome view from the top of the stone tower at the summit! Also, it started to rain just as we started on the trail but we did not get wet at all because there was a full canopy the whole way to the top!
The trail was somewhat boring, but the view over lake Sebago was beautiful.
Gradual incline for the first mile with a steep incline for about 1/2 mile to the top. Great spot at the stone tower for views and pics!
