If you are looking for beautiful without planning a big hiking trip, this is the place. Have been up here so many times with kids to a person with a broken leg! It is worth the walk to see these views!

We have been coming here for years, and still get lost finding the parking every time, but that's now part of the adventure:) This is an amazing payoff hike-for very little effort. Most people will find this to be a moderate hike with some elevation...More

This is a short hike that most children can accomplish. The view of the lake and foliage are stunning. A nice way to get outside for a little while.

This is a wonderful hike to take with children or people who don't consider them hikers. The view is nice and the trail is easy to navigate.

Time is right for a walk on this trail to see all of the brilliant colors of the fall season along great pictures to take family pictures.

Easy climb with great views of Long Pond, off of the Watson Pond Road. Be careful if it is wet as some of the even flat rocks become very slippery.

We wanted a little hike on our first day in Maine. We took two families up the mountain with six children. We did carry the small ones, but it wasn't too difficult even at that. The views from the top were delightful. We did a...More

It's a .8 mil loop. We also did it clockwise -- and boy were we glad. The descent was a lot more steep, and I'm not sure we would have persevered if we had started off counter-clockwise. Nice views at the top, and the trail...More

Nice hike up this trail to the summit on a nice day. Excellent views from the top of the local lakes and forest around the area.

The trail is a .8 mile loop that we usually do clockwise; you can do it counterclockwise if you want, as well. By the time that you have reached the top, you have had the opportunity to view the Belgrade Lakes Region and the turkey...More
