Pretty View

This is a quick walk and worth it, as the views are very pretty when you get to the top. Have gone in Spring, Summer, and Fall. Each season offers things to see along the walk. Have done this walk since 1990. Had to carry daughter when very little, but not a steep climb.

This used to be a family friendly great little hike. The Fire tower is even on the Waterboro Town Seal. That is in the past. The cellphone tower folks wrecked the road, the ATV traffic is pretty high many days. And the town can't find a way to cut back the trees and brush to allow a good view. Letting you kids climb the abandoned Fire Tower, not maintained by the town, is getting pretty risky. Only way to get a good view though now is to climb the Fire Tower. There are hiking trails off the road up, but very hard to find, and go no where. They forgot to put up signs! Want a good local hike? Go to Limerick Land Trust. Good trails, little traffic, no ATVs, good signs, well maintained, better view at the top.

You can drive most of the way down the dirt road then park and walk the rest of the way. Near the summit be careful of the broken glass. You can climb the fire tower and if it is manned you can go inside where you have 360 degree views for miles. Great learning experience for kids to see how a fire tower works. Call the Town of Waterboro Fire Department if you want to see if the tower is manned prior to your visit.

a short hike, nice view
Jul 2014 • Couples
This is a quick hike, a little steep in a few places, that brings you to a lovely view. We enjoyed the walk on a breezy, summer day. There were no crowds. Parking was a little challenging and finding the trailhead not so easy, but with the help of our trusty Maine atlas, we managed to find the place. We took the walking trail that is marke d and never saw a tower -- possibly you come to that if you follow the road. No restrooms or outhouses. Possibly a nice walk for the blueberry picker when the time is right for the berries. . . . many wild bushes.

Once you get to the top, there is a great view of the surrounding countryside of southern Maine - especially in the fall, with all the colors of the foliage. There is a fire tower that gets you even higher. A great individual or family hike and experience!

Nice short hike

My friends, my husband and I drove most the way to the summit, but parked a good 20 minute walk from the top. We got out and walked the rest of the way up. You could probably drive further if you had a truck, but it's always good to get out and get some exercise. At the top there's a small tower you can climb up the steps and get a better view of the surrounding area. It's a lovely spot to have a small picnic and just enjoy the fresh air. There is a (cell?) tower at the top which is a minor obstruction, but you can go into the forest behind it and find another outlook that hides the tower from view.
