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.

hiked this trail with my 3 kids (ages 8-14yrs). we went up the Eagle Scout trail and the Nature Loop trail and came down the Ledges trail, it was a pretty easy hike and my kids loved the stone tower. it was a bit cloudy when we went but it still had great views. a hike i would recommend for really any age or skill level.

An easy short hike with a great view at the end.

We started the trail by following the Eagle Scout trail. There was a few steep spots and lots of big rocks to climb over but the view from the summit was worth is. We followed the loop down to the road back to the parking lot. They do ask for a $3 donation to park

Awesome! Had two young kids with me and they loved it! Especially once we got to the top and saw the stone watch tower; will definitely be doing it again :)

Fantastic hike with young kids. Little bit of scrambling at the end make it even better for little ones.

Nice hike in the Lake Region area. Relatively quick trek, but there’s a nice stone fire tower with panoramic views at the summit.

It’s a nice short run with good elevation gain and irregular granite and roots. Great for a technical trail run with a few loops. Cool stone lookout tower at the top!!!

Quick hike. I didnt do the full loop and just did the Ledges Trail. Was very very buggy. The entire time.

This was a quick hike but a little steep at parts. We took the orange trail up and the green trail for a quicker trip back down, both marked well. Try to ignore the flys in the parking lot because it does get better as you hike. View at the top was great!

Great mountain to hike! All different kinds of terrain. Summit is awesome and plenty of room to stretch out and have a snack!

Well worth the jaunt up this mountain and taking in the mountain ranges on top of the unique fire tower on the summit. I took the nature trail up and scout trail down. Keep your eyes peeled for the orange a couple of places it was difficult to discern where the scout trail was....recently a Cedar fell over from the wind storm about a 1/5 of the way down, blocking the trail and markings ahead. No biggie, nust something to be aware of. Enjoyable nature stroll.

Fairly easy hike. We went up the eagle scout trail. Watch out for the hornets nest on the side of the fort at the top though.

Quick, rigorous in places, and sweet payoff. Rocked it with my girls. Tower at summit was very popular.

Good little trail... would deff. rate this as easy. The blazes should also be marked better for the different trails.

Hiked with a group of colleagues from India last week. Very short hike for extraordinary views! The kids, parents, and dog all had a great time.

Great little hike with kids. My 8 and 6 year old girls had a great time. Nice little bit of scrambling and awesome payoff at the end. Did the quick way up and the snowmobile trail down. Lots of great features on the descent as well.

Enjoyed this hike. Gorgeous day - mid 70's in mid August. Bugs were not bad as there was a breeze at the top but did use bug spray on the way up. Took the Eagle Scout Trail up and it is steep most of the way with lots of tree roots and stones in parts. At a critical point when this trail hits the Nature Loop, it is confusing. We were looking for the Ledge (with view) marked on the map and could not find it. Did get to the summit, and it is a beautiful view from the stone tower. The short yellow Ledges trail is up some very steep rock that would be very slick if wet. We took that down to the road and walked back to the parking lot. Wish there had been maps at the station (they were out). But overall a great few hours to spend hiking in on natural wooded trails with a treat at the top.

Great hike. Foggy day, but wanted to fit it in before the end of the vacation. As such, we missed the view from the top. But the journey was fun! Kids loved the tower! We took the Woods trail up and Ledges trail down. Very doable for a senior, two adults, and two kids (2 and 4 y/o). After rain, be careful on the rocks.
