Ascent Trip Report

The AMC guide lists this as Burnt Mountain, not Hill. Locals call it "Hill" though it is only 600 feet shorter than Sugarloaf, which is the mountain next door. Lots of hiking above treeline. Spectacular views. One of the best mountains in Maine. Sketchy trail marking in the alpine zone though.
