Goose Eye Mountain Trail

Goose Eye Mountain Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Straddling the Maine–New Hampshire border along the wild and rugged Mahoosuc Range, Goose Eye Mountain’s barren summit has lured hikers for many years. From atop this 3790-foot peak there are few views in western Maine that are finer.

Traditionally reached via two enjoyable trails located on the Success Pond Road (a logging road that begins in Berlin, New Hampshire), this destination now has a third and more scenic option, constructed by the state of Maine in the 1990s. With two branches, the Wright Trail journeys across many diverse and dramatic landscapes, including an old-growth spruce-fir forest, an outstanding rocky ridge, a cascading mountain stream, and a glacier-scoured cirque."

"Remote and wild is the land that straddles the Maine-New Hampshire border along the mighty Androscoggin River. This is moose and logging country. Goose Eye Mountain is part of the Mahoosuc Range, which includes Old Speck among its stellar peaks. One of the hundred highest in New England, Goose Eye’s cone-shaped summit at 3,870 feet has scenic, panoramic views of two states. Surface quality: Unpacked."
