This is a great side trip when company visits- on a clear day. Drive to the top, get out, relax, enjoy the panorama of Penobscot Bay. Just take it in, take deep breaths, use binoculars, and enjoy!

We went on a beautiful fall afternoon. The colors were beautiful and the weather was great. Nice easy hike with amazing views of the ocean outlook.

Well worth the hike up but find the tracks rather than use the road. The views are outstanding. A small fee to enter the State Park. There are other walking routes in the park too

We drove up the mountain on a clear day and enjoyed the wide view of the coast, all the way up to Acadia National Park (I think).

The road is paved, two-laned and 1.5 miles in length. Tour buses and motorhomes can climb/descend it with no problem.

It usually opens in May and closes after Thanksgiving to cars. You can always park and walk up the road year round.

There is a parking lot so you may always park and hike up the mountain year round. No sledding hills that I know of but the town owns a ski mountain called the snow bowl that you can sled at.
