Hiking

Loved this hike, however, beware that trees have fallen and in some spots it might be difficult to follow the trail. If you use the all trails app and turn on your location it makes it easier to follow. Overall, the trail is a fun, quick and easy hike to do. At one spot when going up to Big Hill we decided to veer off the trail and climb up the boulder, not too difficult and saved a ton of time. We went counter clockwise seeing Big Hill first followed by Jackie, glad we did it this way because the sun setting over the lake was a great ending.

Nice trails and views. Light traffic, just be mindful of all the tree damage from the storm. Majority of trails are blocked by fallen trees and brush, just makes it a bit more fun. Plenty of spots to jump off trail and wander.

Hiking

We planned on doing the Suffern trail and ending at Kakiat Park. We were 4 miles into our hike and ran into a mama bear and her cubs. We ended up backtracking our hike to the start in Suffern. Please be cautious when hiking as less people are out due to severe heat. The animals are out more and we even ran into lots of spider webs from the lack of hikers. Giving this hike 4 stars for the challenge as we have completed a portion of it in the past numerous times.

I did this trail in the reverse direction of how it’s listed (clockwise instead of counter clockwise). Once you cross over the river the trail is not marked very well. Took me 10 minutes to walk like .2 miles because I kept on having to backtrack. After that, starting uphill, it was very pleasant. A bit buggy, but not too bad. Once I climbed more the views were beautiful!! This trail has lots of variety. Lots of rock scrambling, super fun! I will definitely be coming back to do this again. The parking lot is not very big, though. I came at 11 on a weekday and had to park on the road, along with many others.

Was planning for the 8 mile hike as noted in Alltrails. Ended up doing 15 miles all together for approximately 5 hrs. This is due to a couple of factors: (1) we parked at the Lake Sebago Boat Launch - so about a mile and change to actuallu get to the 8.2 mile pike meadow loop trail; (2) trails marks were a challenge to follow, specifically when you get to intersections; and (3) to be fair, I am fairly new to the pro Alltrail subscriber - so not sure if I my set up after dowloading the map could be better. Overall though, moderately challenging trail loop. We had great weather and run into a fair amount of hikers (specifically when you get close to the parking areas). Yes, there are a number of parking areas where you can start. Bathrooms at the visitor center parking were closed. Luckily enough, the trail provided us with the second best option... If you are planning to do this hike, I suggest start early in the day during the summer time and bring plenty of water and snacks. Most importantly dress appropriately.

Hot by the rocks as there is no cover after the first mile. Shelter is still closed.

BackpackingOver grownScramble

Not enough reviews saying this so I will: the rock climbing is NO JOKE. Like, 90 degree angle clmibing. Granted, I was wearing a huge backpack because I was going to camp up at west mountain shelter, so that probably made it harder, but STILL. I’m not sure how anyone hikes down this trail? I had to go back a different way. Anyways, saw a ton of red efts so that was cool. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND BACKPACKING HERE UNLESS YOU ARE VERY EXPERIENCED.

HikingNo shadeRocky

Great hike, lots of blue berries if you want to pick and eat on the way. The hike is quite tough on a hot day as there isn’t much shade especially after the first mile. Also beware - we saw a bear on the trail right after the sign of where not to camp
