0.6 mile round-trip, moderate.
The trail makes a gradual climb to the summit (elevation 410 feet), where the foundation of an early rusticator’s tower and cistern remains. In the early 1900s, there were expansive views of Penobscot Bay and the Camden Hills, but the growing forest now blocks the view.
