Your not allowed to park where your gps brings you.... parking it at end of road. I asked a local and he allowed me to park at start of tote road under the no parking sign but if you don’t ask you should park at beginning of road. Once you walk down the tote road you take your first left then you take another left once you see large rocks this is where the climb gets a little more uphill. If children hike they need to be extra careful where the rocks and dirt make it easier to slip. It was a nice hike up didn’t take to long and was very pretty. Views are blocked by trees a little but it certainly worth the hike to see the view that you can see :) we also heard an owl

The trail is 2.1 miles. My wife and I started at 10 and finished it at 2. They should tell one that it was more difficult than we expected. The first half is all up. It includes large rocks, poles with wire rope, the rings of a ladder hammered into rock to help one climb, hand rails to help one to hold on for safety and a metal ladder to continue on up the trail. After getting to the top there are a couple of nice spots to sit and take in the view. The last half is longer as it is not as steep but almost nothing but bolder fields. Make sure you have water and have told someone where you are. An injury could be bad news. Finally a good part of the trail is part of the AT. At 67 I would not do this one again.

Easy flat trail, rocky surface wear good shoes. Wide pathway with scenic stop by Deering Pond.. many off shoot path trails to investigate. Bring own trash/ dog poop bags no trash bins available . Short walk from Hanson ridge to Deering Pond, can walk in kayaks.
