Birch Mountain Ledge Trail (Peaks Kenny State Park)
One day I should actually come to this park when it's open. That was the thought running through my head as I walked the 1.75 miles from the closed front gate to the trailhead of the Birch Mountain Ledge Trail. That said, I really enjoy this park when I have it all to myself, as was the case today.
The initial walk along the park and campground roads is scenic, with pine trees lining both sides of the road. The Birch Mountain Ledge Trail itself is a moderate forested hike that climbs a short bit and then runs along a ridge line before descending down to Sebec Lake. There are no sweeping views from the trail but it's a pleasant hike. A short trail connects from the lake to the campground road but I elected instead to explore the campground itself.
Here is a map of my seven mile hike.
