Ascent Trip Report

This hiking trail is located at Aroostook State Park, south of Presque Isle, Maine. The 5 km loop trail brings you to two summits, South Peak (371 m.) and North Peak (349 m.), finishing at the trailhead in the parking lot to the east of the mountains. It's definitely recommended to hike the loop in a clockwise direction because of the steep rocky section you'll find ascending to South Peak. We like to hike with trekking poles, but other hikers we met didn't have any.
