Little Jackson Mountain Trail is a 7.2 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Phillips, Maine that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and backpacking and is best used from March until October.
From West: Starting on ME Route 17 in Byron (22 miles south of Oquossuc or 13 miles north of Mexico), take Dingle Hill Road over Coos Canyon and the Swift River and drive approximately 4.5 miles until you see a pullout and signs for the trail on the left. (Dingle Hill Road changes name and becomes first Weld Road and then Weld to Byron Road.) Look for Morgan Road, it is a long dirt road that is very narrow, with very few turnouts to let other cars pass. From East: From the intersection of ME Routes 156 and 142 in Weld, follow ME Route 142 north 2.3 miles and turn left onto Byron Road. Shortly after the turn, Byron Road is unpaved; continue to follow Byron Road to Morgan Road. Morgan Road is very narrow and dirt with very few turnouts to let another car pass going the other direction
