Burnt Mountain Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The northwestern part of Baxter State Park is characterized by isolated, low mountains. Burnt Mountain is the only trailed one. After a steady but not difficult climb, you have a spectacular view to the south and east from a rocky clearing near the summit."
--Greg Westrich, Hiking Maine's Baxter State Park (Falcon Guides).
