Mount Agamenticus

Mount Agamenticus Professional Review and Guide

"Mount Agamenticus is popular with hikers and sightseers. The hike begins at the summit and descends northwest, tracking an abandoned ski run into a quiet valley, then returns over partially open Second Hill. This hike visits most of the habitats around Mount Agamenticus while avoiding most of the crowded trails.

Mount Agamenticus is the highest point in York County. It was an important landmark for sailors along the otherwise featureless Southern Coast. The mountain is a granite pluton that was laid down about 200 million years ago. It is related to the White Mountains, not Maine’s other various granite features like Mount Desert Island and Katahdin—which are hundreds of millions of years older than Mount Agamenticus.
The hike begins on the summit, which is busy with the converted ski lodge, lookout towers, and communications towers. The views from the summit reach from the White Mountains in the west to the bright white of York County’s
beaches."
