An enjoyable hike through old growth forest to an Audubon Nature Center followed by a steep scramble to an open summit with impressive views. Beautiful Borestone Mountain is a hidden jewel at the southern end of the 100-Mile Wilderness. A Maine Audubon Sanctuary, this serene little mountain (1,947 feet) features old growth forest, sparkling ponds, and expansive views from its craggy summit peaks.
Half way up the trail, there is a staffed interpretative center with historical artifacts, and wildlife and nature exhibits. This is a perfect hike for families or anyone interested in learning about the natural wonders of Maine’s northern forest.
