Hiked 7/1418. Drive about 2 1/2 miles deep in the Pharaoh Wilderness to reach the trailhead. Weather was low 80’s and very humid with the bugs out in full effect. You can tell the trail was lightly trafficked, only saw a few people heading beck while in the way up. Once my gf and I reached the summit we caught an amazing sunset fringe atop the fire tower. Fire tower was pretty old and run down, but overlooked various ponds and mountains. Approx 4 hours round trip. Saw a black bear on the way down which spooked us a little bit. Camped out at one of the primitive sites on Moose Pond Rd near the trailhead. Definitely recommend this mountain for a beautiful sunset!
