Mount Phillip, Rome

QUICK TRAIL FACTS

  • Preserve Size: 207 acres
  • Trail Mileage: 1.4-mile loop
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: moderate
  • Sights: views from summit (755 ft.)

On a recent Sunday in August, the parking lot for the 755-foot Mt. Phillip was full! This is evidently a popular place. A 1.4-mile loop takes you to two nice lookouts. The trail starts off a bit rocky and then climbs — steeply at times, gradually at others — to the summit. Belgrade Regional Conservation Alliance protects this spot.

Directions: If you’re coming from Route, 27, turn onto Route 225 go 1.5 miles. The trailhead will be on your left, directly across from Starbird Lane.
