Fun and relatively quick hike. Has a nice steep start on rocks and some dirt trail then you're at the top, the rest is a nice slow decent down and around the back of the mountain with nice views of the Sound and opportunity to get down to the shore.

Steep but relatively short trail to the summit. It offers superb views, and seems to be very popular with families with children.
Very nice and not challenging trail. Superior views of Somes Sound and Norumbega mountain. Surprisingly rewarding views for such a low elevation. You need to be careful on this very short trail - a lot of roots there. Just a lovely trail for a short afternoon hike.
