Starting out from a well marked trailhead, follow a well travelled trail up Jockey Cap. Passing by boulders for exploring, you are able to see glimpses of the cliffs through the trees. The trail goes up and around to the back of the small mountain where it breaks through the forest and up onto the cliffs. From the top there are great views of the mountains of Western Maine and the White Mountains in New Hampshire.

Nice trail to take the family on. We hiked it with my 68 year old mother and 3 year old niece. Both loved the view and bronze panoramic map.
