Route Climbed: The Owl Trail Date Climbed: Several times in the 1990s
This mountain became a favorite of my Dad's. We harvested a quart of blueberries along the trail before the main ascent. We also discovered that what we thought was scrub at the summit was really 40 ft pines growing from just below the cliff! Nice views of the Witherle Ravine.
Route Climbed: Owl Trail Date Climbed: August 1974
Did this on a summer's afternoon when the trail was brand new. It was quite springy on the spruce and fir duff. Started around 1 and was back by evening. The big cliffs peeking over the ridge of Katahdin when viewed from the lake were much larger than I had previously thought..
