“Incredible Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Beech Mountain is a great hike through the woods. I would rate it a moderate hike with some good inclines, but no scrambling needed. You will cross a view streams that add to the experience. There is a fire tower at the top that gives you incredible views of Somes Sound and the south part of MDI. This is a must do hike at a less traveled part of the island.

“Great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

I am a novice hiker. This trail will suit hikers of all skill levels. Beautiful views. Well maintained trails. Children friendly - but keep them close, there are a few areas where they should NOT run off alone.

“Great views of Echo Lake from the top”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

It's steep and it has a ladder so it might not be for everyone but the hard work is worth it. The view of Echo Lake from hundreds of feet above is wonderful. My 6 year old nephew was able to do it, with little trouble.

This is one of the great moderate climbs. It's on the quiet side of the Island.

“Very good trail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

We did this as a 4-5 mile loop. Mostly it is beautiful forest and rocks. Definitely some vistas of lakes, etc - with the best part being the beech cliffs area (which is not that far from the parking lot).
