The 7 mile out-and-back hike took me 5 hours to complete, and although the elevation gain is technically only 900 feet, my GPS tracker registered a total ascent of 1,749 feet because of all of the ups and downs on the hike. The views are great from the rock summit as well as the viewpoint at Raven's Ledge, but the rest of the hike is through the woods.


Directions to Trail Head: From the blinking light in the center of Greenville travel north 5.1 miles on Route 6/15. Turn onto the North Road (a dirt road) marked by a sign for Maine Public Reserve Lands – Little Moose Unit. At 8.7 miles turn onto the East Moore Bog Road. At 10.1 miles you will see a gravel parking lot on the right.
