Hiking on Mount Agamenticus - 21 Mount A Rd, Cape Neddick, Maine The Mount Agamenticus Conservation Region consists of more than 10,000 acres and is located within an additional 30,000 acre expanse of conservation land in southern Maine. This land is comprised of a rich and unique coastal forest that supports the highest diversity of animal and plant species in all of Maine. The mountain and the surrounding area provide residents with an ideal location for hiking, biking and sightseeing. While most of Southern Maine is heavily developed, this stretch of conservation land is a natural treasure that will be preserved for the enjoyment of generations to come. Mount A’s trails are for hikers, bikers, and other seasonal activities such as snowshoeing. Select trails are open to equestrians and ATV riders. As you travel the trails, we hope you will discover why this place is special. To ensure long-term trail quality and to protect against erosion, trails are designated for specific uses. Trail signs, color blazes and the trail map tell which uses are permitted on each trail. Trails At The Summit The BIG A (universal access design) Easy. 1 mile. 20 minutes. Circles the summit area, through the shrublands and around the field. Fisher Trail (hiking and biking) Moderate. 0.2 mile. 10 minutes down/15 minutes up. Many switchbacks; but no rocks. Dense hemlock forest shades this trail behind the horse stable. Very few other plants grow under the dense shade of the hemlocks. Blueberry Bluff (hiking) Difficult. 0.3 mile. 10 minutes down/15 minutes up. Steep, exposed bedrock; rocky sections. Beautiful views to the south, including Pawtuckaway Mountain and the ocean. Scrub oak and blueberry hold on to this warm, exposed slope of thin soil. Witch Hazel (hiking and biking) Moderate. 0.1 mile. 5 minutes down/5 minutes up. Some rocks. Look for the beautiful old hemlock and uncommon chestnut oak along the trail. At the top of the trail, witch hazel is a common tree with wavy-edged leaves and straggly autumn blossoms. Sweet Fern (hiking and biking) Difficult. 0.2 mile. 5 minutes down/10 minutes up. Steep, exposed bedrock; slippery when wet (not recommended in rain). This former ski run is being reclaimed by young, hardy plants including gray birch and the aromatic sweet fern. Vulture’s View (hiking) Difficult. 0.5 mile. 20 minutes down/30 minutes up. Steep, exposed bedrock; slippery when wet (not recommended in rain). Beautiful views to the northwest; sometimes you can see as far as Mount Washington, 90 miles away. Exposed granite is evidence of ancient geology and modern erosion. Trails Near the Base Ring Trail (hiking and biking) Moderate-Difficult. 1.5 mile. 40 minutes. Western portion is a gradual ascent; a few rocky areas. Eastern portion is steep and rocky. Follow the Ring Trail to climb half-way up the mountain. The Ring Trail crosses old ski runs of the Big A.

Some steep, exposed bedrock; some rocky areas. A long, secluded walk to the base of the mountain. Goosefoot is a small tree, common along the trail’s edge, with leaves shaped like a goose’s foot. It is also known as striped maple because of the white stripes on the thin trunk. Wintergreen Trail (hiking) Moderate. 0.4 mile. 15 minutes down/20 minutes up. Moderate slope with slight erosion. Hemlocks dominate the cooler, northwest facing slope that leads to Mountain Road. Wintergreen is a small, dark-leaved plant that is common on the forest floor.
