A simple short hike off the main road.

Just park on the side of the road and walk up a short trail. This location is just a few miles north of the Blueberry Hill overlook. both are great, the French's view is better. You see Great Pond, North Pond and some of Long Lake. Pretty in Spring but great in fall with the leaves

If you are looking for beautiful without planning a big hiking trip, this is the place. Have been up here so many times with kids to a person with a broken leg! It is worth the walk to see these views!

We have been coming here for years, and still get lost finding the parking every time, but that's now part of the adventure:) This is an amazing payoff hike-for very little effort. Most people will find this to be a moderate hike with some elevation to climb, well maintained trails, great summit views, and a fabulous hike for a dog. We always bring a small carry in snack for the summit which has ample room to spread out even if it's a busy day. Total hiking time is maybe 30-40 mins, if you don't stop at the top for long. Trail down is easy, but loose gravel and dirt, with switchbacks-so footing can be tricky. Take it slow, and you will be fine. Overall one of our top picks for a short, but not boring hike, with a great payoff. Bonus- very likely to see eagles as they soar off the cliffs and over the lakes:)

Beautiful view of foliage, easy family hike
Sep. 2017
This is a short hike that most children can accomplish. The view of the lake and foliage are stunning. A nice way to get outside for a little while.

Easy hike with a great view

This is a wonderful hike to take with children or people who don't consider them hikers. The view is nice and the trail is easy to navigate.

Time is right for a walk on this trail to see all of the brilliant colors of the fall season along great pictures to take family pictures.

Short Hike

Easy climb with great views of Long Pond, off of the Watson Pond Road. Be careful if it is wet as some of the even flat rocks become very slippery.

Nice little hike for the Florida family.
Jul. 2016 • Family
We wanted a little hike on our first day in Maine. We took two families up the mountain with six children. We did carry the small ones, but it wasn't too difficult even at that. The views from the top were delightful. We did a picnic lunch at the top and loved it! I recommend this hike for anyone wanting a quick trip that is easy and nice!!

What fun

It's a .8 mil loop. We also did it clockwise -- and boy were we glad. The descent was a lot more steep, and I'm not sure we would have persevered if we had started off counter-clockwise. Nice views at the top, and the trail is well marker.

Nice hike up this trail to the summit on a nice day. Excellent views from the top of the local lakes and forest around the area.
