Comments
Comments: Lovely 3.4 mile hike to an awesome summit atop Lower Aziscohos mountain. Should you desire to bushwhack to the true summit, have at it. That bushwhack looks, uh, time consuming and frustrating with all the dense foliage... but there is rumor of a register jar over there.

This is a straight forward hike that is “mild” by Maine standards. No super steep scrambles, rock faces or exposed areas. Novice hikers would have no issues following the trail.

This hike is worth the drive just for the views alone. Katahdin was hiding today but the Whites, Saddleback, Bemis, Old Blue and a litany of other peaks were in full view. Also in view were the Rangeley lakes (Cupsuptic, Rangeley Lake, Upper and Lower Richardson, even peeking out was Mooselookmaguntic).
