Woke up early the day after I hiked Katahdin to catch the sunrise from this adjacent peak. After taking so many photos of the picturesque rock walls from the Hunt Trail the day before, I was curious to see what it was like up close. A steep trail (though paltry compared to the final push to the tablelands), I made it to the top before the sun broke over Katahdin, which was a sight to behold. Recommended.
A great hike, awesome views, and didn't meet another soul. It's my best little mountain in Maine.
A fine day trip with great views.
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.
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..
