“Incredible Views”

Beech Mountain Trail
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
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.

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.

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.

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).
