We did this trail in April, when there was still quite a bit of snow on the mountain, which made the ascent pretty difficult, but it was our third mountain we’d hiked so it would be much easier now-especially in summer or fall! Views at the top were really great, so overall I’d say it’s not too difficult a hike. A bit hard to find the parking for this mountain though-even asked the locals and it took 2 stops and 4 people before we were finally pointed in the right direction. Overall a good hiking experience.

This hike is extremely boring and is gravel and dirt for the first 2.2 mile walk in to the actual trail. Poland springs has all of there signs up that say Please No Trespassing and they are EVERYWHERE! Just an unpleasant hike and wanted to save those who want something enjoyable to walk and hike on.

Most of the walk in is on a gravel road that gently meanders uphill. When you turn off onto the trail the climb intensifies and most of your elevation gain happens in this last half mile. Once on top the views are great and you can see several different wind power projects, a knocked over fire tower, and the Whites.
