Little Moose Hiking Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The rocky outcropping on Little Moose Mountain’s long ridge offers fine views across the Little and Big Moose Ponds of Big Moose Mountain. To the east is Moosehead Lake and the mountains across it. To get to these views you hike past the two ponds, through woods filled with spring wildflowers. There are three backcountry campsites along the hike that are good destinations for young children and first-time backpackers.

The trail descends through all these wildflowers to a set of black slate steps down a hillside. The smooth, black stones stand out against the surrounding woods, a reminder that Little and Big Moose Mountains are made of metamorphic rock. You won’t see any other slate on the hike, but notice that the rocks along the shore of the ponds and the rocky outcroppings you climb are not granite. The hike passes three backcountry campsites—one at Big Moose Pond and two on Little Moose Pond. None is more than 1.5 miles from the trailhead."
