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.

Super short hike right behind the Dollar General. The trail isn't very well marked, but just walk towards the small bald and you'll be able to get to the top. Did this hike in the rain and expected it to be much more slippery than it was, so that's a plus! The sculpture at the top is very cool, as were the views-- definitely worth the 10 minutes it takes to walk up to the top.

Trail wasn’t marked very well. But the view from the top was worth it

The trail is not very easy to follow, but the view from the top, along with map sculpture, is worth it.

Don’t write this one off because it’s short and easy. The view of surrounding mountains from the top is well worth it.

It is an easy and fairly short trip up but the trail was not marked well at all,it was very confusing. The top has a very cool sculpture that shows you what all the mountain are in the distance and the view was awesome.

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.
