Straddling the Maine–New Hampshire border along the wild and rugged Mahoosuc Range, Goose Eye Mountain’s barren summit has lured hikers for many years. From atop this 3790-foot peak there are few views in western Maine that are finer. Traditionally reached via two enjoyable trails located on the Success Pond Road (a logging road that begins in Berlin, New Hampshire), this destination now has a third and more scenic option, constructed by the state of Maine in the 1990s. With two branches, the Wright Trail journeys across many diverse and dramatic landscapes, including an old-growth spruce-fir forest, an outstanding rocky ridge, a cascading mountain stream, and a glacier-scoured cirque.
