Hike up to Maiden's Cliff

2 Miles Round Trip - 1000 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Maiden's Cliff Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by Danielle Tourigny

This hike is less than 2 hours from Portland, and it brings you to a gorgeous cliff overlooking Megunticook Lake from 800 feet up!

With a total elevation gain of 1000 feet in one mile to the top, the entire hike is uphill. The whole hike is within tree line until the very top, but there is a beautiful stream to hike next to for at least half. At the top, the view opens up to the Maiden's Cliff, and the view is spectacular. The one mile back is not difficult, but if you hike it in winter, it can get pretty icy, so be careful.

The trailhead for this is separate from the state park (it's actually right down the road on Rte 52 across from the boat launch in its own parking lot). There is a blue sign indicating Maiden's Cliff trailhead. The pin drop reflects the exact location.
