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.
