The trail is fairly easy, but you can't see much until you get to the top. The veiws from there are fabulous and make the hike worth while. Bring bug spray.

Took the short hike up to the Beechnut House. Sod roof, solitary building on the top of a hill overlooking the Penobscott Bay. Nice breezy day. Free activity.

Love this spot. A great place for a walk, a picnic, a dog walk. The view from the stone house is fabulous, there is always a cool breeze, and in the winter, the stars on display make it seem magic!

We were able to take the entire family on a very easy hike through the blueberry fields in early August. The top of the hill gives you stunning views of the ocean and surrounding hills. The hiking trail is about half in the open air...More

This is a lovely and quite easy hike/walk through the blueberry barrens. The view from the top is nothing less than breathtaking. On a clear day you are treated to a 360 degree view of the surrounding area.
