Take the well used Pine Meadow Trail
to Seven Hills Trail
and then up Diamond Mountain. It's a fairly difficult scramble, not for amateurs at all. The effort is well worth it as you get many amazing overlooks of the surrounding hills, Sebago Lake and Pine Meadow Lake.
Need to Know
Bring plenty of water, once on the top of Diamond there is no water at all.
Can run on most of this trail except the scrambles. Also coming down off Diamond is pretty steep and a good risk for slips.
Start at Reeves Meadow info center, be advised on weekends it can get very crowded and parking fills up fast, you can park on the side of the road but at times you'll need to hike 1/4 mile or more to get to the trailhead. Take Pine Meadow Trail
, which can also be very crowded on weekends with some very noisy hikers. Once you get on Seven Hills Trail
it gets significantly less crowded and noisy. Less than a few tenths of a mile you'll start up Diamond Mountain, a nice steep trail at first then a really good scramble to the top. Make your way across the ridge for the views and a few easier descents.
Flora & Fauna
Plenty of birds, a snake or two and maybe even a bear. Blueberry bushes are all over and a rare blackberry bush here and there.
