Great approachable trail with a few challenges. Cub Scouts love the hike up and the structure at the top. Lots of small critters and birds. Chickens might stop by the trail head to say hi.

Very pretty with the leaves changing. Some steep heart pumping spots. Need to climb the tower at the summit to really see the good views.

Beautiful trails. Went up Eagle Scout and took Woods Trail down. Please be careful at the tower, the wasps/hornets were very active on the right side yesterday. (9.23.20)

HikingGreat!

Beautiful hike. Definitely moderate for beginners like myself but if I can do it you can too! Well worth the hike. The views are priceless. We took ledge trail up (it gets you to the top faster) it’s more straight up but way shorter then the other way. When you first start out on ledge trail make sure you see the old car and water well super cool :) Parking is $3 per vehicle. Happy hiking :)

Only felt like I was dying for about 10 mins of the trail which is a new record for me! The view at the top is beautiful when the leaves are changing. Enjoyed the walk down the road peeking at wealthy peoples mountain homes that I someday aspire to live in.

Great hike! We did this 2 younger kids and a dog, and everyone enjoyed it. We took the Ledge trail up and Woods trail back down. Beautiful sights up at the top and the stone tower was really cool. You do have to walk on the road to get to this trail.

What a great spot. Tower at top was well worth the trek. Don’t love the end hiking on road, but who cares with that view. Great shirt hiking with 5 month old goldendoodle.

I hiked up and back the Eagle Scout Trail for extra exercise and I found it a real joy. Well marked and maintained. A beautiful view west from the tower at the top. Crowded on a holiday weekend but adequate parking. Definitely a good hike for a short amount of time.

HikingGreat!

Wonderful hike, allows a quick and rewarding view if your short on time, or to spend more time outdoors in a beautiful area the “Eagle Scout “ and “Nature Trail” are also enjoyable. The view at the summit was spectacular.

Nicely maintained and marked trail. Nice views at the top and even and old stone tower to climb to see everything around you. Eagle Scout trail is a nice hike then ups the intensity when you start making progress up the mountain (pretty steep).

Great hike. Trail is well-marked and challenging but not too challenging for this 62 year old. Might be a bit much for small children or inexperienced hikers. If you find a pair of men’s costa sunglasses (camo frames), let me know. Hubby lost the on the ascent (Eagle Scout path) 8/16/20. Oh, and no bugs today!

Starts off easy and had me wondering why it was rated a moderate trail. Followed Eagle Scout Trail up. It gets steep and the view is really cool with this stone tower at the top. Took the shorter way down to complete the loop, which was steep and the pine needles made it annoying, but great hike and NO BUGS

Well marked. We were looking for a trail near Sebago Lake that was moderate and we could take our 1.5 year old Bernese mountain dog.Great with our dog and fun for us too. Lots of shade and no bugs.

It’s been a few years since I’ve done this one. If I remember right, I liked it. Plan to do it again sometime in the near future!
