This is not an easy hike. I would say it’s moderately hard! The trail head was difficult to find, but after reading some of the reviews, we found it. The third itself was relatively hard for myself but not so much for others in my group. Trail was leaf covered and wet. There are lots of tree roots and rocks that were covered by the wet leaves, watch your step and take your time. The incline is pretty steep as you get up there. Overall the hike was great, especially the views! Well worth the climb!! I would definitely recommend they change the rating to hard to help others using this app.

Great trail. I would say it’s easier than Saddleback, but it has beautiful views and offers a wonderful canopy hike under the deciduous and then evergreens up top. There’s the stands of an old fire tower up there too!

Right off of Route 16, 18 miles from Oquossoc, this trail is less traveled but worth the trek. It is not as steep as West Kennebago but more challenging than Bald Mountain. We took our four year old dog and enjoyed the narrow but clearly marked trail. Although there were a few areas that were wet, it is in good condition. We have climbed this mountain about five previous times and it continues to be a great trip. Truly a moderate climb due to the ascent and the many roots so best for climbers who are in decent shape with some experience. The summit at the top is small but provides an expansive view of the Rangeley lakes region.

As mentioned before, the trail head is not that obvious. The surveyor tape is long gone and it took us to go the dam to realize we went to far. The trail head is exactly 18mi from the turn on route 16 from Oquossoc, and 0.9mi from the Dam. You will see a wide opening on the left side of the road (if you come from Oquossoc) where you can park your car. DO NOT go up that dirt road to start the trail! The trail head is on the same side of the parking spot, 30ft away going towards Oquossoc, going right into the woods. And within 1min of walk you should see the name of the trail on a sign, as well as the first red blazing. The hike is gradually more and more difficult, but it is worth it. Nothing impossible, just going through rocks and roots. The view is spectacular and even on a partly cloudy day you can see Mt Washington.

A short fun leg of the AT, the 2.5 m hike from the road to the summit begins with the first half mile straight up, so stretch before you begin! After that the trail levels off some until the two mile mark then it climbs again, this time up over rings and to the peak.. 3600ft nice views mostly scrub brush , took me 1:45 up 2:00 decent

With thunderstorms close by and sets of heavy rain rolling through our group of 7 paced and took it slow with these conditions. Was well worth it after hitting the summit and taking in the views. Cant wait to climb it in dry conditions.

Great hike - well blazed trail once you find the trailhead, I was a little concerned about that as I had read there were some clearcut areas and logging roads that we would cross and was afraid we would get onto the wrong path. Trail is very steep more so than the imp face trail and there is some hand over hand required occasionally. The summit is very rewarding with excellent views of many lakes, and mountains. Apparently you can see into Canada, and Vermont from the summit, wish I had brought some topo maps to identify some of the features.
