A steep climb to the summit of a mountain on public reserve land with good views of surrounding lakes and mountains. Black Mountain is surrounded by lakes and ponds and is near several other mountain trails. A hiker could spend several days in this area, walking over varied terrain. Cairns and stone steps mark this trail. Atop the mountain, cairn builders have waxed poetic. Monoliths set among miniature spruces remind visitors of a Japanese garden. General location: The Tunk Lake region of Downeast Maine northeast of Ellsworth in Hancock County.
