Barren Mountain

Barren Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"The trail climbs steadily to Barren Slide—a cliff with a large scree slope beneath it. From atop the slide and nearby Barren Ledges, you have fine views east, west, and across Onawa Lake to the south.

From Barren Mountain’s mostly open summit, you have views in every direction of the surrounding 100 Mile Wilderness and the mountains around Moosehead Lake."

Great hike! Very steep in spots but the spectacular views at the top are worth the sweat. And if you are brave the views from the tower are great too. Be sure to check Barren slide which is on the way up.
