Comments
Comments: This little hill (385' elevation) appeared in the 2018 AMC Maine Mountain Guide, so the wife and I gave it a try today before apple picking. Part of the RRCT -- Royal River Conservation Trust -- it is not far from Pineland Farms and Bradbury Mountain State Park.

This is a nice easy trail for families and dog walkers. The other folks we saw had a baby in a sling. The only drawback is that there are no views to speak of either from the summit or anywhere else, so expect a leisurely walk in a mature hemlock forest with some modest elevation gain.

Maine has four Pisgahs, and this is the smallest one. You've got to start somewhere...
