Location: Greenville, Piscataquis County
Description: Hiking trails that run along Little Moose Mountain, offering opportunities including modest day-hiking, fishing at undeveloped ponds, wildlife watching, and primitive hike-in camping in a scenic, remote setting.
Favorite Season(s) to Visit: Summer and fall
Activities: Hiking, photography
Why It’s Special: I hiked Little Moose Mountain for the first time two summers ago and was blown away by the views of Moosehead Lake and the surrounding mountains. The trail is well-maintained and has beautiful stone staircases leading to the summit.
Tips: I recommend stopping for a dip in Moosehead Lake at the public dock downtown, and swinging by for an ice cream at the dairy bar on Maine Street afterwards.
