Ragged Mountain Trail ist ein 4.4 Meilen langer, wenig besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von West Rockport, Maine. Er führt durch schönen Wald und vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als schwierig einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert und ein Ausflug in die Natur unternommen werden. Die Route ist am besten von April bis September zugänglich. Hunde sind erlaubt, müssen allerdings an der Leine gehalten werden.

The Loop Trail is discontinued now and they do not maintain it … The “quickest” way to get to the tower at the top (actually the trail passes just below it) is via the Route 17 trailhead, and as you will likely find, it isn’t an easy hike once you start climbing. The approaches from Thorndike Brook and Barnestown are easier (i.e. more of a gradual climb), but they result in a long hike to get all the way over to the tower. However, either of those routes is an easier experience than coming up from Route 17.

Beautiful 40 degree day out. Decent snow coverage on trail with some icy patches. Was thankful having micro spikes but definitely not a necessity

To me, I believe the trail isn't that difficult. I'd rate it as moderate. The viewpoints are really nice! At the summit, you have a nice view of Camden and the ocean.

I would have to disagree with the difficulty level on this hike. It was a pretty easy trail that didn’t feel long at all. The view near the top was beautiful, especially considering how little we had to work for it.

I definitely wouldn’t rate this as hard. Absolutely stunning views at the top especially in fall.

I enjoyed this trail very much. A little muddy and overgrown but a beautiful view at the top well worth it.

A relatively easy hike. Well marked, thru the woods. Lovely. It goes uphill last third of hike but still not hard. You are rewarded at top of hike with lovely views of lake and can munch to your heart’s content on tons of wild blueberries, which are most abundant near the cell tower. Downside: You can hear the roar of trucks and cars on road below for the entire hike. Boo. Also, bring bug spray and wear your sunglasses so the abundant bugs don’t get in your eyes.

I hiked this trail with two teens and a puppy. Excellent conditions, really well marked, fun and pretty easy. The only thing is - bugs! Endless mean little black things. Yuck. But if you run, then they don’t bug you as much. Bring plenty of water and bug spray.

Beautiful, beautiful walk through the woods. Very simple, slightly moderate terrain until you reach a little over halfway. Very steep up! No climbing though, just a big hill that requires some thigh and calve muscle strength. Beautiful lookouts, and then some really cool scrambling that brings you to the ridge. Amazing hike, would do over and over. Only thing is I wish there was more signage. The blazes are clear, and everywhere. However, you can easily just forget where you're headed or what trail you're on. The summit can be confusing too. Hard to tell where to go. I couldn't find the marker, but all trails told me I was at the top! There's a radio station up there.

Well, this hike will certainly be one to talk about. Nothing super remarkable about the trail itself. Rather, it was our decision to hike it 1.5 hours before sundown with a 30% chance of thunderstorms. We will never make that error again. I paused the recording when we had to shelter in place and never resumed it due to the pouring rain. So outside of our poor judgment, we really enjoyed the hike. I would classify it as a moderate. Not very long, but the verticality after the first mile adds a nice calf workout. We will hike it to fruition one day.

What a great trail!! My dog and I gpt there early, 8 am, to avoid any crowds. A few others had the same idea. No biggie. We had the top to ourselves anyway. There was only 1 steep section. but it was short and the path made it easier. Awesome views at the top!

This trail is ok. Overgrown in some areas. Starts out as a very gradual incline but gets steep. We didn’t make it to the top because of my 8 year old dog who was exhausted after our four day hiking trip. I had cell service the whole trail(I have Verizon), which normally on trails I don’t! Lots of bugs especially ticks, muddy in the beginning, and lots of rocks. Probably wouldn’t do it again.

Fun hike! I got on at the Route 17 trailhead. I would rate this as hard because about 2/3 of the way in there is a very steep incline. There are also a few rocky places you have to climb over, but those are easier than the incline. It was still a great hike and I really enjoyed it.

I’ve hiked this trail a few times. It’s a good workout with excellent views of Camden harbor, Penobscot Bay and nearby lakes/mountains. There are some steep parts but was surprised trail was rated difficult.

I would not rate this as hard. It does have a bit of an incline but not till pretty far in. It was pretty muddy at the bottom. The views are worth the hike in

A fun quick hike. Parking on RT17 is limited and shared with Spruce Mtn. and Pleasent Mtn. so I would recommend arriving earlier in the day. A lot less busy than Megunticook Mtn. though which is a bonus. I personally would not rate this as a “hard” trail. Starts off gradual and builds up to a couple steep inclines. For the most part the trail is well marked with blue blazes. Once you get above the tree line they become sparse so pay attention to where you come out if you plan a out and back trip. The summit is the cell tower. If you go around the fenced off area there are some good views of the coast.

Great hike with a good challenging incline. Dog friendly with rewarding views of the coast.

My 4 year old son and my dachshund did about 3 miles of this trail with me today! We turned around at 1.5 miles because of little legs getting tired. But overall we enjoyed it and will definitely go again!

Great kickoff hike for the season. Trail is well traveled and well marked with blue blazes. A favorite season opener for me.
