Comments: 2.2 mile hike up Jeep road to actual Mt. Zircon trail. Can’t miss it, nice sign for it. Didn’t use microspikes going up the steep parts but should of.... I did wear them going down tho. First one to the summit this morning... views were incredible.... I liked this summit a lot. I could see all the way to the Tripyramid’s in NH which is pretty impressive... views to Carrabassett valley seen on the other side of the mountain. All mountains in between and beyond.... Presidentials in the clear, what a view. Had summit to myself for an hour easily. Once I started going down I passed at least 25-40 people. The early bird gets the early worm... highly recommend this hike... on my radar now for snowshoeing next winter. ✌🏻
