A granite bedrock trail leads to extraordinary mountaintop cliffs and far-reaching views to Acadia, Blue Hill, and Penobscot Bay. The 4,500-acre Great Pond Mountain Wildlands was purchased in 2005 by the Great Pond Mountain Conservation Trust. The purchase fulfilled the dream of a local man named Stuart Gross, who founded the land trust in 1993 with a group of local residents. He climbed Great Pond Mountain several times a week to survey the surrounding wildlands and hoped that one day he could buy the land and forever protect it and make it accessible to all.
