Did this hike with snow and ice on the ground but the trail was well packed down. I wore ice cleats and I’m glad I did as there were several steep sections where it was slick ice. There were some steep inclines where I felt very winded but overall a moderate hike. Well marked trails and gorgeous views at the ledges.

Love that they have added the Ledges Trail. If you want good workout, do the Tower Trail - Ledges Trail - Blueberry Trail loop. Now that the snow is melting, my Yaktrax worked ok. No need for snowshoes. Pisgah is also very dog friendly:)

The South Face Loop is VERY challenging in snow shoes for a newbie!
I will return!

Super fun and scenic!

Great scramble up to the table lands!

Well marked and easy to traverse, but every dog was off-leash, which made it hard to walk with my 3 year old. He kept getting knocked over by excited puppies. The trail was to supposed to be a leashed area, so we weren’t expecting that.

The views were spectacular! My husband and I had already done quite a bit of hiking this day (including the Beehive Trail) so this was very physically demanding. He asked, "Do our fitbit steps still count if we dragged ourselves off the mountain?" Lol. We did the South Ridge Trail and after reaching the summit we turned around and came back out the way we went in.

The views were spectacular! I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who is afraid of heights. You'll be climbing and walking on trails where you can look over the edge and think: "If I fell right here, I would not survive". With that said, there is no reason you should fall unless you're doing something dumb. ;)

Short hike with one steep area, we brought snowshoes but left them in the car. Trail is well marked, parking lot is not plowed.

great view of the town of Camden at the top of Battie.

Went after fresh snow with solid ice underneath the powder which made it slippery at times, but a pretty easy stroll to the top. The history of the hut at top is neat and good views of the ocean.

Very scenic, my dog had no issues on the walk, found a sea urchin shell. The lighthouse itself was underwhelming but the walk itself was worth it.

Beautiful place completely ruined by inconsiderate dog owners. You can’t look around at the beautiful surroundings because of all the dog poop everywhere, unless you don’t mind stepping in it. Gorgeous place to walk turned into a dog park.

Great trail! Awesome view of the lake and Mt.Washington

A hike that is more like a climb. Great during the dry seasons, before the snow and ice hit. I don’t believe this trail would be possible to complete in rain, snow, or extreme wind.

Technical skills not required, but willingness to climb some scary-looking spots is key!

Feel a bit mixed about this spot but overall the stars are for the actual trails - maintenance, scenery and diversity (some rocky spots and other fun, fast stretches great for woods running).

It is adjacent to the local landfill but the only ‘challenge’ this poses is one’s personal issue with its proximity. I didn’t notice until I heard the thousand gulls and crows as I ran over a knoll.
Otherwise you’d never know it. I do wonder how this effects the bodies of water that surround this area. It must. Something to keep in mind before letting your dog take a drink here!

Most notably....there are many, many trail intersects that are not marked and it is NOT straight forward as to which is which and who goes where. Others are very well indicated. So go and enjoy, but pay attention.

There are many nice little ID tags for the local flora along the routes ~ lovely that they did this.

And lastly...while I recommend this nice little network of Trails (great for fast, technical runs or just some meditative, Nature appreciation) and so loved visiting with my own pup, please please please Dog Parents...pick up after your pets! It was so sad to see the many ‘piles’ left behind by irresponsible people, even ON the trails:(

LOVE this moderate hike, have done it many times with my kids as they grew. Endless granite ledges at the top carpeted with blueberry bushes. The locals come up here with blueberry rakes in mid-August. Views are staggering. I have seldom found so great a payoff and never with such an easy climb. My all-time favorite hike.

haven't been up there in a long while , remember when it was just known to locals and hardly anybody climbed it. remember having to look for old mailbox in bushes to find trail head, now a huge parking lot. old house for lookout Warren has been torn down and burned by maine park service. they also tore down the firetower. And their contractor burned down top half of mountain of mountain. extemly nice views from top just southwest of mt. kahtadin . take the Greenville road off the golden road about 8miles down on right before bridge they'll be a rod with sign for mountain. If coming from Greenville go thru Kakadjo road turns to dirt go about 5 or 6 miles wood bridge with bog on right the road to mountain will be just over it on your left. you'll need a truck or SUV don't try driving your car the roads are ruff.

Good trail, will keep it in mind for summer runs. Hard to follow at points - very clearly marked sometimes, but be careful not to venture too far north particularly on snowmobile trails and get off track
