“It's a big rock, think it's flint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2011

I've been up Kineo several times, and have scaled the face of it once. The cliff is layers of loose stone which is sharp abd brittle. Great vew of the lake, Kineo hotel and Rockwood from the top. The Indian trail is a short route to the summit the foot of which begins from the lake on the west side of the face, and accends to the east along the edge of the cliff face. It is a fairly steep trail it's about a :45 minuit hike to the summit.

“Very beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2007

Don't miss this hike. You take a boat over from Rockwood. Then, hike the Indian Trail, which has the best views. At the top, there is a fire tower. You must climb the fire tower. At the top of the tower, there is a 360 degree view of both ends of the lake, mt kathadin, canada, and the surrounding mountains. Very beautiful! Don't miss it!
