It takes you through a softwood forest where pine and spruce trees create a canopy, providing shade for most of the hike. If you are a beginner when it comes to hiking, try one of the other options on the list since some challenging parts are best suited to someone who has more experience. You will enjoy views of Great Pond Mountain and Toddy Pond as you get close to the summit.

The Hayes Trail

The Hayes Trail offers a challenge for hikers who want to “see what they are made of.” It runs for about a mile and starts in an open field. On your mile walk, you will climb a stone stairway, ascend through a grove of beautiful oak, spruce, and fir trees, and enjoy amazing views to the south.

You can park at the Hayes and Osgood trailheads, which are located on Mountain Road. There’s also parking for the Becton trailhead on Turkey Farm Road, which is located in Blue Hill.
