Mountain is really a hill, but looks like a lot of trails. More than 5 miles worth

Beautiful wooded walk. The colors of autumn, the sunlight filtering through the leaves, and the wide trails were wonderful. There was quite a bit of traffic noise, but overall one of my favorites so far!

This little trail system was short and sweet. There is a nice surprise lookout on one end of the loop. I sat and enjoyed the view while a woodpecker foraged. Beautiful green glow through the leaves in the late morning sun of summertime.

Great little surprise near Freeport. Not that strenuous as a hike, but a great place to get out for a good regular woods walk or well kept enough for trail running. Some nice deep ravine views and a good little summit payoff view. Several well marked and maintained trails to choose from and combine for various distance/effort levels. Just across 295 from downtown and has some background noise, but visually feels miles away.
As another reviewer said, road off SR126 is marked as "Hedgehog Mountain Road", not Landfill Road.

I love this spot for taking my dog on a nice hike. I have returned here just for him. A few geocaches here too.

It was ok. Did the loop twice. Def not 2.8 miles in the 1time loop. No good summit views, but still a fun hike. Map originally took us to dessert of Maine bee tee-entered address to just read hedgehog mountain road

More like a walk than a hike. Also the trails don't match the map on this website. Very pretty walk though.

Beautiful dappled light woodsy setting. The trails are well marked and suitable for beginners, children and certainly dogs.
