Wonderful 360 degree view of the world (OK Southern Maine, New Hampshire and the Atlantic Ocean. Great lookout. No climbing unless you want to do it on their revitalized trails. The observation deck, education lodge, and look-out boards enhance the exploration. The look-out boards are located at all four points of the compass and show you what you are looking... More

Grew up skiing there until it closed in (?) '73/'74 ( Don't remember- was in college by then). The ski trails are still fairly visible. Great trails to hike. Fantastic view of the Seacoast area on up to the White Mountains. Highly recommended for anyone visiting the area.

Mt. Agamenticus was formerly a ski area which is now a conservation area. There is a road to the summit for driving or bicycling and various hiking trails. Either way, it's a pretty short journey. Views from the top are excellent, especially on a clear day. One can see the White Mountains to the North, Vermont peaks to the west,... More

Hike, bike or drive up to the peak and have panoramic views of southern Maine. Pack a picnic and enjoy. Free to the public. There was a visitors center but was closed. We took gorgeous pictures of each other with the picturesque back ground. A can't miss stopover if you are in the area.

Enjoyed a nice drive up Mt. A this past weekend. Although there are many hiking trails, for the first time we decided to drive and just check it out. You can access the mountain from York or Ogunquit and it is a short drive up Mountain Rd. There are picnic tables available and lots to see. We observed many bald... More

A local was kind enough to tell us about this scenic place with hiking trails. We even enjoyed the drive there away from the main town. There were signs for turtle crossings which we’ve never seen. We spent about an hour walking. It’s very peaceful and scenic offering many views.

Short shaded hike to one of the nicest views I've seen in New England. The trail at the top is a full loop with views of the white mountains and the Maine coast. You can also drive to the top.

After having a quick snack at Flo's Hot Dog shack, we decided to check out the view since Mountain Road leading up to it was right across the street. Reaching the top by car, there's a good size, albeit dusty, parking area, surrounded by beautiful views: mountains on one side, and the ocean on the other. We didn't stay long... More

We stopped here after a visit to the Nubble Light. A great vantage point to take pictures from and a quick drive from the lighthouse, with the drive to the top if you are in the area.
