Great trails, well marked and met a couple other hikers that were very friendly. Our lakeland terrier enjoyed the steeper climbs and meeting others dogs. Beautiful views from the peak.

Thank you so much for clarifying Capt, however my second attempt with a friend of mine was just as disappointing as the first. We started the trail behind Big Apple as advised, we walked through some wooded areas out to a clearing and eventually the trail ended at a road. We assumed we would cross the street and find that the path continued next to the brook. No such luck and no visible trail to follow but lots of poison ivy! I think this trail must great for people who know it well but it is not for first timers or people not from the area.

The trail starts just right of the Big Apple store (next to the Black Horse Tavern). Not well marked but once you get to the back of the Big Apple parking lot you should see the trail.

Great hike! Bob Chase trail is great for kids and takes you to the summit. Pretty views. We did South face loop trail first. Which was a moderate hike and probably tough for little kids. Many trails to pick from. We will definitely be back.

The GPS brought us to a bridge next to a Rite Aide we entered where the GPS indicated and there was no visible trail just an abandoned parking lot. Maybe someone could elaborate on where to find the trail?

This is an easy walk through time when Bridgton was a thriving mill town. There are several remnants of days gone by so travel slowly or you will miss some of its wonders. Pick up a trail map at the LEA office or at the entrance to Pondicherry Park behind the local theater. Please be on the lookout for poison ivy as there are several patches but the trail through them is fairly clear. The trail marks are in need of some new paint and currently, they blend into the trees that they are on.

For dead smack in the middle of Bridgton, pretty darn good. No climbing, but enjoyable stroll.

Good for small ones. Blazes can be confusing due to different overlapping systems. No big deal though.
