Bauneg Beg Conservation Area in North Berwick includes 89 acres of deciduous forest land surrounding the 866-foot, three-peaked Bauneg Beg Mountain. The land was acquired by Great Works Regional Land Trust in three parts over the course of seven months in 2000 and 2001. The 0.65-mile trail winds through a deciduous forest, a pine grove and a section of large boulders described as "Devil's Den" before reaching the highest of the three peaks. Trail forks just before the summit with a choice of routes to the top. Easier trail veers to the right. Rocky outcroppings offer views of nearby Mount Hope, parts of south Sanford and, according to Great Works Regional Land Trust, on a clear day, Mount Washington to the northwest and the Atlantic Ocean to the southeast.

The map is kinda confusing. I thought it was a loop trail, but couldn’t figure out the loop from the top. Although it was a really pretty view.

Great hike for beginners, families, & dogs, with just enough incline to get your blood pumping! Easy to follow trail with a cute little summit at the top that's perfect for a picnic with a beautiful view! Trail can be completed in less than 2 hours, so it's great if you wanna do a hike with limited time(:

Beautiful trail. A bit brutal with 3 ft of crunchy, icy snow on the ground, but worth it for the views.

Currently iced over - Bring traction. There is a trail head on the sunnier south side, from Bauneg Beg Hill Rd, but has roadside parking only.

Just got back from walking the North Trail Loop. If you want to add some distance you can add in the Ginny and Linny trails. All in all it was a good trial, marked well, there are some spots you have to look down at the markers on the rocks to know where to go, just need to pay attention and look around. Nice trail to do with dogs and young kids.

loved the hike really nice for being right outside of sanford. the dogs loved it and the views were awesome but the trails are very poorly marked we ended up in someones back yard (on private property) at first but eventually found our way to the peak

Very rugged trail. Poorly marked. Damp, muddy forest floor. Beautiful views. 879' elevation. Will be back!

Fantastic hike, but the actual elevation is around 820'. Part of the trail is a bit steep, but a fantastic view at the top makes it well worth it!

Such a good little hike if you only have an hour or 2! Just enough incline to get your heart beating and great for dogs too! Love this place.

Great hike with family and dog .... The view is probably better when there are no leaves on the trees. A few steep spots for a good leg workout .

Pleasantly surprised! A few moderate sections but well worth it!

Did this trail months ago. The ground was still frozen and it was muddy. The difficulty is moderate. We did it with a baby (8-9months) on a carrier. Has a nice view from the top. We will try it again now in the summer.

Great little walk my boyfriend and I did before lunch one day. There are only a few trails however the area is very scenic for being just outside of Sanford. Overall I really enjoyed these trails and will be back to do it again sometime. The iPhone app directions were way off and led us far from the actual parking lot. For reliable directions visit the conservation areas website which I included.
