This is a small, 317-foot mountain, with a fairly easy hike up to astonishing views from an open summit. I think the view is especially lovely when you can watch the fog rolling over the bay and islands.

The Downeast Coastal Conservancy recommends you make a loop by hiking up Historic Trail to the Summit Loop Trail and down Silver Mine Trail. There are additional trails here that can lengthen your hike if you’re enjoying the scenery (and the birding!).

Directions: From Route 1, turn left onto Pigeon Hill Road for 4.5 miles. The parking area is across from an old cemetery.

I had a minor mishap with my camera so only have a couple of photos of this beautiful place to share.


Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
