Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Access is off Farnsworth Road in Brownfield, head south down Rte 113 From Fryeburg and turn right onto Farnsworth. Drive in 1.3 miles where there is a parking lot on the right - The Maine Mountain guide mentions parking is next to the bridge over the little Saco River - Parking is just prior to the bridge and the bridge is not obvious until you actually cross it - the lot has a junction post and a map for snowmobile trails in the area. Room for 10 cars; trail head is across the road on a logging road which is currently blocked by a cable with a piece of blue pipe

Comments
Comments: A short hike that packs some great views. Most of the trail follows logging roads that double as snowmobile trails in winter. After heading up the logging road you will pass through a log yard - follow the road to the right. There are signs to guide you up to where the trail leaves the logging roads (.8 mile) after which you follow cairns to first the south summit and then on to the main summit. There is some mud on the logging road portions. Easy grades for the most part though there is a bit of a steep rock scramble getting up to the south summit (there is a bypass marked with flagging coming back so you don't have to go back up and down the south summit). Great views from both the south and main summits though you'll need to ignore the logging evident along the way.
