Getting There

Enjoy an old stone tower at the summit along with gorgeous views of Sebago Lake. Half of this trail route is on pavement. It's an easy hike due to the short distance but moderate due to the slope. The trail can be slippery when wet and icy.

Sebago town hall, Sebago Maine

Definitely moderate but worth it once u see the view may not be so easy for younger kids. I have an active 7 year old and she’d probably be tired the moment she got half way lol The views though! Definitely!

Trail is really nice for preparing for higher peaks. Eagle Scout trail is an easier ascent in my opinion, gradual most of the way and then a steep section for about a half mile, but then evens out again close to the summit. The ledges trail is exactly how it sounds, lots of bald face rocks but easy enough to go down the sides of them if you prefer. It ends on Douglas Hill Rd so you’ll have to walk about a half mile down the street back to the parking lot. Views are wonderful and there is a port-a-potty!

Well marked trail great for trail running. Fun quick hike for kids with rock fire tower to get a cool view of sabago lake. There is a “woods trail” that isn’t marked on All Trails, it looks like it goes to top from parking area as well. I’ll have to check it out next time.

The Eagle Scout trail markers do stop completely for about a half mile, but we were able to reach the summit still. Overall very much worth it with that view!

Great little hike for the family! Great views on the stone tower of Sebago Lake and even Mt. Washington. A bit buggy today but not unbearable. Had fun!

Great trail! Very well marked and had a great time on the loop. It was really really hot when I was there but thankfully most of the trail is shaded. Only confusing thing is finding the parking lot off of the ledge trail because you come out on a different one.

Very kid friendly! Went up yellow which was short but steep to get to the top faster and orange down for a nice gradual decline. Made it up and down under an hour and spent a lot of time at the top! Super cool spot

Great family hike. Did the yellow Trail with 2 toddlers and a grandma and it went well. A little steep in parts but easy to follow, not too hard, and great views at the top. Also not as busy as some other spots right now

Great hike, bring bug spray, it's super buggy out. If you take the Eagle Scout trail (orange), beware of sudden and fast elevation gain, but it's a good hike! Took Eagle Scout up and Woods trail down!

Great views if you can fight off the bugs right now! Some what confusing trail for a first time visit but keep your eyes open for markers. It’s a quick elevation climb.

Love it! Super buggy but other than that it was great. Went up orange trail and came down yellow trail and onto the road. Would do it again.

I took the orange trail up and the yellow trail down. The yellow trail ends on a road and then you walk on pavement to the trailhead. The yellow was also pretty flat and steep so I wouldn’t go down it if it is at all wet or icy. The orange trail was nice! Very well marked. Took me an hour with about 10 minutes up top to enjoy the views from the lookout. Very buggy but nothing seemed to be biting!

We were greeted by a curtain of bugs swarming the car. Even after showering in deet, they were relentless. The only way to avoid them was to walk faster. We ascended a steep incline. The stone tower at the top was great, but difficult to enjoy/get a good photo (due to the flying insects).

The trail was steeper than I anticipated about 1/2 the way up to the summit but it was well worth it. Lots of mosquitos and nats though so bring bug spray!

Well marked trail system with maps at trailhead. A little muddy this time of year but manageable and to be expected given spring weather. Lovely views from the tower at the top!
