Generally speaking, a howling wilderness does not howl: it is the imagination of the traveler that does the howling. -Henry David Thoreau
I decided to go to Mt Agamenticus today. "Mt A" is quick a 10 minute drive from Ogunquit Beach Inn Drive 3.4 miles south of Route 1 into York. Take a right on to Mountain Road and proceed for 4 miles. The Mount Agamentiucus Park is over 10,000 acres. its a great place to: hike, Mt Bike and picnic. The former Ski resort is a great place to escape and enjoy the endless views.....
Up on the "Mount" today, I noticed how quiet the wilderness is. The forest offered a quiet stillness and solitude. The only sound I could here was the ruffle of my own feet as I walked through the brush. Some people are dog people; some people are cat people. The same is true with ocean/beach vs mountain/forests people. I am definitely an ocean guy, but once in a while I like being on a mountain surrounded by the woods.
Ogunquit gets busy with summer people, I will ride my Mt Bike to the mountain and explore the trails.
Where: Mountain Road York.
There is a paved road to the summit. Map trails are available.
The Park is open dawn to dusk. There are "port-potties" on the mountain.
No camping or campfires are allowend
