This is the most famous part of the Scammon Ridge perched high above Moosehead Lake at 1029 below and having a historic inn along the hillside, and developing lots along the "hill". The true peak in Scammon Ridge is just NE of the 1858 EL shown on the USGS (note that Blair Hill is actually higher than that subpeak). The true peak of Scammon Ridge is the next highest neighbor at 2079. The highest nearest saddle is between subpeak 1858 and true peak 2079 at around 1825. Thus set COL at 1825. This hill is really part of small mountain ridge and the gravel road to the top cuts through layers of rock.
