This is one of many peak in Maine with the name Burnt Jacket Mountain but this one is along the east shore of Moosehead Lake about 9 miles north of Greenville. This hike is writen up in the local guide "North Wood Walks" by Christopher Keene. The peak elevation is interpolated from the USGS quad which shows it is slightly higher than the 1,680 contour so call it 1685. The closest higher peak is the HP in Scammon Ridge to the east with a peak at USGS 2,079.There is a low marsh below elevation 1060 directly between the two peak as the highest saddle elevation. At 20 foot intervals I assume the low point in the marsh to be 5 feet below this contour or at 1055 plus or minus 5 feet.
