Audubon Land.

Description

First mile or so is well marked singletrack. Typical Maine — rocky and steep in places. About a mile in, you arrive at the Sunrise Pond, Borestone Mountain Audubon Sanctuary. You check in there before continuing up to the summit. The next part of this hike is challenging. Lots of stair steps and steep terrain.

Just prior to the summit, there are iron rungs to assist hikers over some high ledges. This section is challenging and has narrow ledges with vertical drops. Once past this section, there is some additional scrambling to get to the actual summit. There is a second summit beyond.

Backtrack down to Sunrise Pond and check out with the Audubon. From there, follow the access road back to the trailhead.
