Heading up from the parking lot, we took the left fork in the trail and were a bit surprised by the steep terrain and tough footing as we approached the crest . The terrain changed markedly about . 5 mile into the hike. In looked as if there had been recent (we were there in Oct '16) timbering in some... More

YOu have two paths to take. We took North Summit which was about .9 mile. It was great first real mountain hike for daughter. We thought we were lost, supposed to follow blue markers, so headed back down, but it took us on the loop to the southern side of the mountain! Absolutely wonderful. They say it is a 3... More

Listed as moderate difficulty in various websites, this hike is true to form. A moderately difficult climb took us about a quarter of the way around a 3 mile loop trail (at least 3 hours of hiking with some fairly steep climbs) and to a lovely view over the town of Newry and the Androscoggin River. At that point we... More

Our second home is close by, so have hiked several times. Varied terrain, with great views from the cliffs at the summit. Intermediate.

This is a great little hike. It has a ledge at the top where you can have a picnic. This hike is only about an hour to two hours. Depending on how long you rest at the top. But any time in nature is better than no time in nature.

My wife and I had the pleasure of having our daughter up to Maine from NYC for a weekend and we hiked here in the early fall on a warm Indian Summer day. Well a thunderhead approached from the other side of the mountain and when we neared the summit it started pouring but it quickly blew by leaving a... More

This is a great 2 hour reasonably challenging hike offering tremendous views. The trail is well marked and the parking is available at the start

The Mount Will Trail can be reached by taking Route 2 east of Bethel Village. The trail is on the left side and is across the street from the Bethel Recycle and Transfer Station, on your right side. There is only a small sign, at the entrance to the parking lot, marking the Mount Will Trail so watch for it... More

The last time I hiked this trail it had obviously be recently maintained. It's easy to follow the trodden path or keep an eye out for the blazes on the trees. It's a beautiful walk through the woods even though it's close to town. The views from the ledges and cliffs are beautiful, especially in the fall. The trail does... More
