Mount Kineo Professional Review and Guide
"Mount Kineo seems to rise out of the middle of Moosehead Lake. It is part of the largest mass of rhyolite known. This hard rock of volcanic origin attracted native peoples for millennia. They used the rock as flint and fashioned it into tools and arrowheads. Later, one of Maine’s most famous hotels was at the foot of the mountain. The hike climbs along the edge of the high cliffs that are the mountain’s east face. There are fine views from the refurbished fire tower on the summit. The second half of the hike follows the shore of Moosehead Lake around the north and west sides of Mount Kineo."
