Bauneg Beg Mountain rises inconspicuously above the rural outskirts of North Berwick. Driving to the trailhead, the mountain and its three peaks aren’t readily distinguishable until you’re nearly upon them. Perhaps that’s because the mountain is the only major summit in southern York County without a communications tower on its top. Hike a short, scenic loop over two forested peaks. Despite the mountain’s low profile, a 25-minute hike via Bauneg Beg Trail to 850-foot Middle Peak’s craggy ledges reveals distant views to Pleasant Mountain, the White Mountains, and the Atlantic Ocean.
