You will enjoy the ride here along with all the views along the way. Worth the trip. Check out all other Views while in Rangeley also.

The climb starts off easy for the first half...then it gets steeper and more challenging as you get closer to the top. Not a climb for those not in decent shape, or physically challenged. But...the views from the top are amazing! Picnic tables for eating and. A fire tower to top of the majestic views of Lake Rangeley and the... More

3 teens , 9 year old and wife and I loved this spot, challenging enough half way up and great fire tower views in top. Maybe 2.5 hour hike total.

This is a relaxing family climb...be sure to do the fire tower at the top!!! The 360 view of lakes and forested hills in the fall is breath taking

You'll see Mooselookmeguntic Lake, Rangeley Lake, and surrounding mountains. I would say the difficulty level of the hike is moderate. The terrain gets increasingly steep and rocky towards the top, but glimpses of the... More

Great hike, did it a while back. It starts off pretty mellow and gets a little tough towards the end. You are rewarded with a beautiful view at the top.

We went up one wet and foggy morning, hoping that the skies would clear. They never did, however the hike was exhilarating and fun, regardless. I must say, the "Mainer" difficulty assessments are rather more understated that we are used to from hiking out West. The final scrabbling up the steeper sections isn't what I might have called "moderate". Make... More

Been hiking here for forty years. There is great fire tower on the top with incredible views of both Lakes! Dog friendly. Portapotties at the bottom. Family friendly hike. Stop at Grants camps for a drink afterwards.
