Ascent Trip Report

Located west of Sebago Lake. A humongous/tall Communication Tower (WCSH Television, Portland, Maine), never seen one this tall before on top of a mountain, it has am arrangement of 6 levels of guy wires, most impressive. I sort of got dizzy by looking at the top from its base ...... a drive up.

We parked at the gate just before the Tower Complex and walked east (left) on a path to a large clearing for the eastern guy wire anchors, then clockwise around the Tower fence. The Highpoint of the summit is northwest of the tall Tower at about 100 yards in a wooded area.

From the Douglas Mountain TH parking (see its TR for directions) we drove back out to Dyke Mountain Road, turned left and traveled on Dyke Mountain Road for 1.2 miles to a left turn of Winn Mountain Road. The road climbs .6 miles to the gate.

"I'VE NEVER BEEN LOST BEFORE, BUT I WILL ADMIT OF BEING CONFUSED A FEW TIMES."
