Trail shared by Maine Wanderlust

The longest approach to Douglas Mountain, but still challenging where it climbs to the summit.

Runner Notes

At the top of the climb it can be hard to tell the Eagle Scout Trail from the Nature Loop. The Nature Loop is the red-blazed trail to the left.

Description

The Eagle Scout Trail takes the longest approach to Douglas Mountain. It's the orange-blazed trail from the parking lot on Spring Ledge Road. It is somewhat downhill and flat as it follows along a snowmobile trail, but soon stays left and separates from the snowmobile trail.

Next it starts to climb Douglas Mountain slowly, but that changes when it takes a right-hand turn and heads west. The trail climbs up aggressively after crossing a small brook, but levels off a bit when it connects with the Nature Loop Trail. The trail continues to climb until it breaks out of the trees at the stone tower that marks the summit.
