Ragged Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"The hike up Ragged Mountain on the Georges Highland Path is part of a network of trails from the headwaters of the St. George’s River in Montville to its mouth in Thomaston. The trail up Ragged Mountain, through oak-pine forest, crosses several old stone walls before climbing the mountain’s south ridge. From the south ridge, covered with stunted oak trees and blueberries, you have fine views of the surrounding country and Penobscot Bay. The hike ends at the top of the cliffs on Ragged Mountain’s west face that give it its name. The summit of the mountain is on the spruce-covered ridge to the north.Atop the cliffs you have fine views in every direction. There is a tower on the highest point. This is not Ragged Mountain’s summit, but is the end of the hike. The summit is on the spruce-co vered ridge to the north. The Georges Highland Path continues around the summit and descends to the north."
