Hiking to the top of Magalloway Mountain
Magalloway Mountain is one of our higher peaks with an elevation of 3,360′. The mountain is also the backdrop of our beautiful view from the cabin porches. There is a hiking trail to the summit where there is a fire tower to optimize the incredible view from the top. To access the hiking trail, drive north on Rte 3 to Magalloway Road (a well kept dirt logging road) Follow Magalloway Road for 5 miles, turn at the sign and continue another 3 miles. The trail head is where the road ends. There are two trails which lead to the summit. Both take approximately 45 minutes. Good walking shoes and a water bottle is recommended for the trip.
As the only manned fire tower in Pittsburg, if the fire warden is on duty, you can climb to the summit of the tower. If not, you can still climb most of the tower and take in the tremendous view of the mountains and lakes of northern New Hampshire, Quebec and western Maine.
Make a day of it and visit Garfield Falls too!
