John B Mountain is only 250 feet high and the hike is only 1.1 miles, but there is a lot to see in that small package. The mountain has an interesting geologic history and offers fine views of Penobscot Bay, Eggemoggin Reach, and the islands that fill those waters. The hike begins by following an old woods road around the west side of John B Mountain through an open forest of towering hardwoods. This first section is a good place to find spring wildflowers in May and early June before the trees fully leaf out. When the trail leaves the woods road, it winds along the base of cliffs then climbs gradually up the mountain from the north through thick moss and evergreens. Across the mountain's top, the forest is drier and more open with more lichen than moss.
