The hike up Mount Chase, named for a man who started a forest fire at the behest of a Bangor timber baron, follows the old fire warden’s trail. The trail begins in hardwood forest and climbs through mixed forest to a spruce forest near the summit. The small open area on the summit offers fine 360-degree views, most notably of the mountains of Baxter State Park to the southwest. The hike climbs the old woods road to the fire warden’s cabin, which still stands. ATVs also use this trail so it is wide and not particularly steep. Beyond the cabin the trail becomes a footpath that climbs the rocky mountain. High on the shoulder of the mountain, a rough side trail leads to a rocky dome known locally as Eagle Point. The views from it are the same as from the summit—plus a view of Mount Chase’s summit.
