Hike Report

I hiked this trail with three other college aged friends of mine. It was difficult enough to produce a light sweat, but easy enough so that we could carry on a normal conversation as we went. We hiked up on a misty day in July, and upon reaching the top, it started to rain. We still had a good view of Megunticook Lake and the surrounding hills.

At the top is a cross which was erected as a memorial to a 12 year old girl who lost her life while chasing after her hat in 1862. It is located right next to the start of the Ocean Lookout Trail, which is popular for its beautiful Maine scenary

The trail itself is rather normal, as far as trails go. There are two large sized boulders that kids typically love to climb on (it is very easy to naviagate around them). In times past I have seen hawks and turkey vultures while at the top.


The first half the trail (about .5 miles) is a moderately steep climb. The second half of the trail is more level and seems more like a nature walk rather than a hike. I have taken groups of elementary-aged children many times on this trail with great success. There are no boulders to navigate over, just rocks and tree roots.


This trail is approximately one mile long. It took around 15 minutes to make it to the top.
