Ossipee Mountain is a focal point of the Waterboro community. From the historic fire tower that sits at the summit, to robust recreational use for hiking, hunting, ATV and snowmobiling, Ossipee Mountain is both resource and history rich. Waterboro Land Trust is proud to own 70 acres of property on O

Another decent hike close to home. Was a bit chilly in early May. Easy enough hike with a dog. Sat under the fire tower at the summit and had an adult soda. Moderate walk uphill.

Not sure how many times I've sauntered up this hill to the tower, but good for everyone. Large dirt track that Jeep's and wilderness firefighters traditionally used to reach the tower, portions of this are well maintained for the propose of reaching the cell towers. Nice views if you climb the tower. Fireworks are viewable if you climb on or around the 4th of July.

Ok hike, really confusing to find the right trail. The hike it self was a great exercise due to the trail being overused by atv's and jeeps. I'm going to try again and hopefully find the right trail! Grrrrr

I think this is a ATV trail, to get to it's very confusing ( lots of no trespassing signs everywhere ) and it was so muddy and full of ditches from ATV wheels that I really couldn't enjoy hiking or running on it. However, the road leading to it is 0.5 miles flat and no traffic that was good for a quick run.

The vast majority of this hike is a bland, unattractive steady ascent up a rocky gravel jeep road. Decent workout. There is a nice 1800's cemetery on the right shortly after starting.

Near the top, the first fork on right that has a metal gate just takes you up to a cell phone tower. The one marked "Land Trust", takes you up to a nicely treed summit area with the best views. The final trail on the right, at the end of the road, is the one that takes you up to the fire tower, which to be honest was kinda underwhelming/anti-climatic.

It was ok. Pretty rock and not real eventful.

This was a fun simple hike. Good exercise for me and my dog. I almost stepped on a snake on two different occasions. I would do this hike again.

A simple trail for new hikers, but bland and unchallenging for most.
