Did this yesterday with my mother and her dog and my new puppy. Great hike, super easy for my puppy to keep up and easy enough I went barefoot. Definitely need to remember bug spray next time though! Mostly under tree coverage so we didn't burn, which is always nice.

Views at the top are fantastic! Mostly flat; climb up doesn't begin until last 1/4 mile. Good for dogs too.

I took my 3 year old out today, she had a blast. Bugs were a little on the hungry side so you may want to bring a little bug repentant. Always a fun hike!

We hiked Owl's Head on Jan 27 2017. It was beautiful following a recent snowstorm. It was very cold when we reached the top and exposed to the wind. We took pictures quickly and returned to tree cover.

Hiked this a couple weeks ago with my mother. Foliage was at peak and absolutely beautiful! The view was literally breathtaking.

Parked at the north parking area and hiked the multi-use trails through the forest to link up with the Owl's Head trail south of New Discovery campground. This made an otherwise very short hike into an enjoyable walk through the woods ending in a very gentle climb to Owl's Head. The summit is nicely developed with a picturesque stone stair. Encountered several remarkably large toads in the forest as well as a snowshoe hair near the top of the mountain. Some yellow and white birches noticeably older than the surrounding trees punctuate the otherwise uninterrupted walk through the forest.
