Great short hike with kids. Found the trail head easily enough following the new blue signs on Lily Bay Road. Note that the trailhead is 4 miles off the main road, not 3 as the sign says. The hike was nice, quick up with views from the fire tower. Not much water for our pooch on the way up though.

We found the trailhead easily following the directions. About 1/4 mile in, we came across a bear cub - so cute - but he ran up the trail and we decided mama couldn't be far and we didn't want any trouble, so we backtracked and had lunch at Kokadjo, then hiked Burnt Jacket back toward town. We'll be back soon!

A nice hike with some steeps, but not too much. The view from the bench at the top is beautiful.

Panoramic view at the top if you climb the ladder of the old fire tower. We logged 2 miles from the parking lot to the summit

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
