I took the new trailhead up which is right off of Meadow Brook road maybe 2 miles in.. This trailhead saves you a lot of time on the backrounds. You essentially take stairs the entire way up which was more challenging then expected.. The peak leaves a lot to be desired unfortunately.. Unless you climb the sketchy tower all the way up.

I could not find the proper trailhead, so I used this recording to bushwhack and intersect the trail about half way.
It's a steady series of switchbacks through forest with no real views along the ascent (in Summer at least).
No scrambling required.
The summit offers limited, but pleasant views of the surrounding mountains and parts of Moosehead Lake.
There's an old fire tower from which I could see pretty much 360, but no real platform at the top.
The ratio of views to effort, not to mention finding the place, was not favorable imo.

Hiked this last summer with some friends! The trail is a bit hard to find and we got lost a few times along the way, but some a moose on the road. The trail has some pretty vertical parts near the top, but the view at the top is great. There is also an old fire tower as well
