Streaked Mountain Trail is a 0.7 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near South Paris, ME that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from March until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
This is a very short, but steep, trail located in Buckfield/Paris/Hebron, Maine, about an hour and ten minutes from Portland. This is a challenging, but fun, hike with great views. The trail has an open granite slop with views of the Little Androscoggin River Valley, the Oxford Hills, the White Mountains, and the Presidential Range. Be careful of footing coming down the granite face, especially in wet or damp weather when the trail becomes very slick and in autumn when the leaves obscure the bottom quarter of the trail. The first quarter mile or so of the hike is wooded with loose rocks and prominent roots. The remainder of the hike is on the steep granite face of the mountain, covered in wild blueberries (that make for a great summit snack!). The trail rises about 700 feet in total. Unfortunately, the top of the mountain is a mess of power lines and cell towers, but the rest of the view compensates for this.
A bit steep not a bad hike. Just an awful lot of radio towers and cables and lines at the top, seriously A lot!!!
Great uphill strenuous hike for me. The dog loves it out here. Geocaching bonus!
This trail is very steep and rewards hikers with incredible views of the Oxford Hills. I would recommend trekking poles if your balance is questionable, especially on the descent.
Great hike with incredible views also an abundance of blueberry bushes! The itself was steep and the way we went up was mostly ledges, it rained once we got to the top so the trip down was interesting :)
This hike has a very quick reward of views. I think the "easy" classification might be because of the short distance as there is definitely some elevation gain on granite. Out of shape beginners may not be thrilled if you took them on it for their maiden hike.
A great climb among open ledge with spectacular views most of the way up. One waterfall just below the open ledge. If hiking in the spring, I would recommend spikes as there is a lot of ice over the ledges.
