If this hike were in Acadia, it would get three stars as a second or third tier objective. But, since we rented a house one mile down the road, I'm giving it four stars. My mornings were a jog to the base of the hike, do the hike, and then jog back. Great views once you navigate the summit to get around the copious trees. Too bad the fire tower is closed as of August 2008.
