From Route 4, 38 miles north of the town of Farmington, ME look for signs for the ski resort. Make a right on Dallas Hill Road just before you get to the town of Rangeley.

This is quite a hike from Main Lodge to the Summit. Decent terrain but quite a steady up hill incline up the ski trails as you can imagine, approx. a mile and a half near as I can find info on. Once at the top the views are incredible. It's then 1.7 over to the horn and 1.7 back. This section is much more difficult terrain with ledge and rock climbing. More like true hiking especially for that elevation. Took aN hour over to the horn and an hour back and we are decent hikers. The whole day took us 5 hours, stopping for lots of photos, laughing and catching our breath.

One if the best 360° views I have seen. A steep but fast climb up from the ski lodge is highly recommended.
