1-minute hike: Scopan Mountain near Presque Isle

By Aislinn Sarnacki, BDN Staff

Located within the state-owned Scopan Public Reserved Land just west of Presque Isle, the 1,400-foot-high Scopan Mountain features a beautiful 3.7-mile loop hike that leads to the edge of a marsh, then gradually climbs the slope of the mountain to a few partial outlooks of the farmlands, forests and lakes of the area. Marked with blue blazes, the trail is easy to follow and travels through a magnificent old growth forest filled with big hemlocks, maples, balsam firs and birches.
