Hiked in April of 2016. amazing views all the way up. theres a dip in elevation between peaks so be aware. took about 2 and a half up. Great hike.

Short hike with one steep area, we brought snowshoes but left them in the car. Trail is well marked, parking lot is not plowed.

Amazing, beautiful hike! Very ICY! Take proper precautions

The views are incredible. Be advised that currently on the southwest trail it’s slabs on slabs of ice. You will want micro spikes for sure. Great challenge though. Definitely going back

Could have used microspikes on the top 1/2 of the trail as ice has appeared on the ledges. Managed to travel around the icy areas. Be careful if traveling up this time of year.

the trail was pretty technical due to ice and storm damage. a few trees across the trail but only one you have to bushwack around. This trail has a much more forgiving grade than others on the mountain.

Very quite trail this time of, wet after the big storm this week. Spruce hill has the correct name ,it is covered in Red Spruce of all sizes. The trail is 6.2 miles out and back, steep in sections at the start. The top of Specked mtn. has a great view about 280 degrees with an old fire tower base. I believe it was the first tower in the state of Maine. Did hike with Elijah.

Such a gorgeous, short & sweet hike with great views all around. Be prepared to scamper up rocks. Would not be good for kiddies or elderly. Great mix of terrains.

Great hike. Very steep at the beginning. watch your footing, very rocky. Would not reccommend bringing small children. Follow the RED blazes as it can be easy to get lost if not paying attention. Fallen leaves make the trail slippery, watch your step. Great views, and multiple locations to take it all in. We will do this one again in the spring/summer. There is parking at base of trail.

Nice hike definitely on the moderate side some very steep ledges but very fun as well. I wouldn't bring young kids unless you want to have a heart attack. I hike with my dog and he was making me nervous. views along the hike are great.

Followed the Maine Mountain Guide, page127, and Fifty Hikes in Southern Maine, page 24. Their directions are right on. Arrived at Mountain trailhead and left car for the hike at 1:15 p.m. Trail head is near brook. Lots of people this day, including kids. Arrived at the top at 1:45 p.m. and had many places to lay around and admire the view from all four sides of the peak. Easy to get away from other people. Given expanse of open area, this mountain would be great for skiing. My watch said the altitude was 1840 ft. at the summit, but guides say 1770 ft (off by a mere 70 ft.). Climb and decent using the same trail. Flat and wet rock, slippery and moderately steep mid-trek to the top. Views of Fall color were outstanding for such an easy hike up.

Hiked it on October 13, 1992, and October 24, 2015.

Great hike. Tough, steep, rocky uphill and then easy, flat ridges at top. Interesting terrain. Great vistas. Good place to overnight.

Nicely marked trail. Not too hard of a trail for kids. Was beautiful in the nice weather.

Great hike! Poorly marked. Make sure once at the top you don’t miss the panoramic views to the right. It’s confusing because once you get to the peak, you see a small view which is straight ahead. If you look to the right, there’s a narrow path. Be sure to take that path. Breathtaking views await you. There’s even a rock bench to sit and take in the beauty. Views of Lovell Pond, Mt. Washington, Eastern Slopes airport and so much more.

Pleasant hike with lots of views near the top. There are many variations to increase or decrease the length of the hike based on time and energy available. It is a bit crowded though.

Beautiful view from the top. Great place for dogs off leash. First half is harder than the first, so don’t get discouraged!

Such an amazing hike, well marked trails, beautiful views along the way up, barely anyone on the trail, so incredible!!!!

The summit is gorgeous! Pack a lunch and bring a book to hang out up there a bit!

Fun little scramble and climbing section at the beginning, but was otherwise a pretty easy hike for the hiker of any level. Trails are not very well marked at times, so be mindful of the blazes when you see them!

Challenging hike. Lots of elevation. Great views.

Though the trail has been logged nearby it is well marked if you follow signs and orange plastic ties on trees show which way to go in the lugged areas. An orange tie on a tree with rocks at the bottom of the tree is the marker for the final turn up the small mountain. At The cairn at the top go right for northern views and the stone bench. Then retrace steps to cairn, descend a bit on the trail and go in the other direction on the ridge through grassy areas with cairns indicating the trail for the true summit. This has gorgeous views of Kezar Lake, mt. Sabattus behind it and Brownfield Bog. Worthy shorter hike with great views that was empty on a Saturday afternoon in September. Park in lot before bridge over Little Saco River and cross road to trail with a gate you step over. Good apples for sale at a farm at beginning of farnsworth road by 113.

great hike, done many times. can get slippery if rocks are wet. But the view is worth it.

The hardest part of this trail, was the trail markings. Apart from that, a huge payoff for a real easy hike. A bit of a scramble near the top, but really at the very top, and only a couple of hundred yards. Big time view for a peak under 800 ft, great family hike

A fairly nice adventure with lots of rock formations to explore. Glover's Wig Trail needs markings as there are very few and if it wasn't for the lightly traveled path one could easily get led astray.

be aware that this trail is NOT well marked! there is a parking lot and sign for peary mtn, but the start of the trail is across the street. we ended up on the wrong trail initially, but thankfully someone posted here that the trail does indeed start across the street. keep your eyes peeled throughout the trail for arrows, signs and ribbons pointing you to the right trail as it gets confusing as to which trail is a logging trail and which is the hiking trail. beautiful view at the top! great for all skill levels if you take your time. happy trails!
