Mount Agamenticus Is A Unique Dog-Friendly Destination In Maine Perfect For An Outdoor Adventure

The quickest way to reach the summit of Mount Agamenticus is simply to drive to the top, but what’s the fun of that? This is especially true for a dog that wants to get some exercise along the way. Dogs on leashes are allowed in the “Mount A” Conservation Region. The 10,000-plus acres offer plenty of room to roam, while a network of 14 well-marked trails provides guidance to the dogs’ owners. Even going only halfway up the mountain via the Ring Trail Loop is a worthwhile adventure, with highlights including good vantage points and the remnants of a former ski area.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

The variety of trails is a hallmark of the Mount Agamenticus Conservation Region. Six different trails go to the summit, with connections from three trails that start at the base: the Ring Trail Loop and the Goosefoot and Wintergreen Trails. For more information, see the Agamenticus website.
