Enjoy an old stone tower at the summit along with gorgeous views of Sebago Lake. Half of this trail route is on pavement. It's an easy hike due to the short distance but moderate due to the slope. The trail can be slippery when wet and icy.

Snowy in spots. Trails are marked well. Tower at top is worth the climb. Easy climb. Recommend for families & first time hikers.

Awesome short hike with options for a more scenic route. Brick tower at the top offered incredible views!

We did this trail in January with snowshoes (we have spiked mountaneers) and some parts we had to slide down on our bottoms but it was easily do-able with the right equipment. Just went up again today (October 13th) and the views were gorgeous but it was more like hiking with a bus load there were so many other people on the trails. And one group was camping out at the fire tower while 5 other groups waited at least 15 min just to be able to go up one group at a time & snap a couple pics to give the others a turn. People left toilet paper on the side of the trail, discarded water bottles & bagged dog waste. It's a shame there wasn't more courtesy & respect for a great shared resource.

I recommend the Eagle Scout trail out and back, the other trails lead to the street and you have to walk in pavement back to the parking area. The Eagle Scout trail from the parking is very pretty, there is a nice incline and you can get a good workout going up. The stone tower at the peak and sign that names the mountains you are viewing is cool.

Easy to follow trail, and well maintained. The view is excellent on a clear day, take Ledges trail down.

Unfortunately my hike with my mother, myself (also another female), daughter and grandson was cut short because we were being followed up the trail by a man. We decided to turn around to stay close to people that had past us going the opposite direction and he turned around and followed us down as well. This could happen on any trail but we were unclear if he lives close by or camping in the area because he left the parking area on foot. My mother has done this hike before with no issues but just be extra alert please. I took many pictures of him but unfortunately can’t post it with this review.

Terrible on a foggy day, no view at all LOL Not the easiest in some spots but definitely able to be done even by those who are not experienced hikers. Good trail to begin getting into hiking!

There is a parking lot at the trailhead with a $3 donation per vehicle. The trails are very well marked but they get steep which rates this loop as moderate. The fire tower at the top allows for excellent views! Very rewarding hike.

This is a well-marked and rewarding trail. The ledges trail up the summit is steep but short. At the top, an old fire tower offer panoramic views of the presidential range, Sebago Lake, and other landmarks. Beautiful!

I brought my dog and saw many other dogs here as well! I did not see it posted anywhere that dogs are not allowed. Nice hike. Overall easy, but some steep up hill sections. We climbed it in a big group that were camping together, including a 3 year old, and a woman 6 months pregnant. A few short breaks to catch our breath was all that was needed. Took the Eagle Scout trail up, and the Ledges Trail down.

Eagle scout trail trailhead is right off the parking lot. Ledges and Woods trail location was confusing at first. Here's how to find them. Walk back out the dirt road, at the paved road turn left, walk along the the road to near the top of hill those trailheads are located there. Trails are well marked.

A must do if you are staying in the Sebago Lake area. Stone tower at the top is cool and provides a very scenic view. If you are looking for a substantial hill workout, you can scale the front, turn right, follow less steep trail back to the bottom, and repeat. Gets your heart pumping and your blood moving. Recommend putting on some bug spray just in case.

It’s a relatively difficult trail for beginners. There’s one long stretch of uphill but it doesn’t last for too long, and you’re met with the summit almost right after the difficult part! The trail is also excellently marked. You should have no problem staying on the trail. Three a watchtower on the summit where you can get a nice view of Sebago Lake and the surrounding mountains. On a day with a good view, you can see Washington from the top of the tower. Excellent for families and kids!

Great views from top/tower. For quickest route take Ledges trail up - it's steep, but short, and take the Woods trail down for easier footing and walking. Entire loop took 50 minutes with some hanging around at top. Go from parking lot back out dirt road and up street for trail entrance. Some great views on street up to trail head and some beautiful homes.

Not very well marked and very steep at times, it was a moderate to very hard trail, either that or I was lost, because it felt like I was climbing hand over hand through brush up the side of the mountain, got to the Tower and went down the easy side

Great hike but buggy as any trail would be. Kids ages 4,6 and 8 completed. Did great! Careful of rocky areas.

Hike on 6/10/19: Loved this hike for a mostly beginner hiker. Great mix of a walk in the woods and a steeper hike. Went up the Eagle Scout Trail, around Nature Loop, and down Ledges. Glad I decided to do the nature loop, I liked that. May try the Woods Trail down instead of Ledges next time. Buggy as expected, and Ledges had some slippery pine needles, just take it slow. Will do again this week!

15 mins short hike. Boulder with Latin written on it. “Pizza oven”. Tower with plack stating the names of ponds/lake and mountains in front of you. You can see Mount Washington in NH with good weather from tower. You don’t escape the tree line unless on tower. Dog friendly. Good for picnicking.

This was fun! Parked in the Douglas Mountain Parking Lot ($3) and took the orange trail up (which was difficult since I’m not an avid hiker, pretty steep) and the yellow trail back, it took a little more than an hour. Bring bug spray!!

This is a great beginner/kid friendly hike that is definitely one of our favorites. The top is a perfect spot for a picnic and the views are fantastic.

amazing views once you get to the top. the stone tower was pretty cool to climb up and to see the whole valley including Sabego Lake. p.s. Watch out for ticks. They are highly abundant here.
