Pretty easy trail, slight uphill most of the way until the last quarter mile or so, then it’s somewhat of a rock scramble up the remainder. Not much of a view at the top, kind of grown in. But what you can see is beautiful! Couple of downed trees but nothing you can’t get past. Connects with part of the AT at the second trail junction. Make sure you have plenty of gas, as it’s pretty far out of civilization. And if you come from Route 11 into the Katahdin Ironworks road, there is a fee so be prepared! $10 a person. Dogs are also allowed here, crossed a few streams that they can get water from. Also, don’t forget bug spray!!!!
