Comments
Comments: A nice short 1.3 mi. hike with a big payoff at the top with views over the Rangeley Lake region and out to the Maine high peaks. Mostly dry trail with some minor muddy spots. Lots of widening / bypasses along the ledgy upper half of this heavily used trail. No views on the ground at the summit, you need to climb the tower.
