There are a number of great hikes in the Camden Hills, and this is one of them. We took the George's Highland Trail - right off of Route 17 - to the summit. The ascent starts very slowly - through the woods and along a lovely creek. More than halfway through the hike, it gets steeper but it's nothing very difficult. The view from the top is great - several ponds, other hills, farmland. It is above the treeline and was quite windy the day we made our trip. If you make the hike when the weather is colder, prepare for this with a good windbreaker and something to cover your ears. You can continue the hike to Megunticook Mountain - about 2 more miles - if you wish.
