Ascent Trip Report

Loop of sorts from the main parking area off Douglas Hill Rd. in Sebago. The Eagle Scout Trail was broken out by snowmobiles, and the Nature Loop was broken out by snowshoes as far as the bypass. Continued on the unbroken loop trail for some extra mileage to the upper end of the bypass, then to the summit. Good views from the stone observation tower there. Back down via the bypass to Eagle Scout Trail.
