Ragged Mountain

Ragged Mountain Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The hike up Ragged Mountain is part of a network of trails from the headwaters of St. George 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, which gives it its name. The summit of the mountain is on the spruce-covered ridge to the north.

The trail continues to climb with views through oak trees that are stunted and twisted in Dr. Seuss shapes. This open, rocky forest allows enough light to reach the ground for blueberries to thrive, especially along the several ledges the trail crosses. At just over 1,000 feet of elevation, you get your first open view of the Camden Hills and Penobscot
Bay to the east. The trail then ducks back into the trees and climbs to the top of the cliffs. Atop the cliffs you have fine views in every direction."

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." Read more
