Hikers will leave the main parking lot off Route 107 at 3:45 p.m. and head to the summit.
From the summit of Bald Pate Mountain, participants will watch the sun set over the western foot hills at 4:28 p.m., followed by the rise of the full moon in the east at 4:33 p.m.

Loon Echo Land Trust protects land in the northern Sebago Lake region of Maine. Its mission is to conserve the region’s natural resources and character for current and future generations.
Currently, Loon Echo protects over 5,900 acres of land, and Bald Pate Mountain is one of seven preserves that are open to the public for hiking, fishing, hunting, nature observation and other low impact recreation.
All Loon Echo hikes are free; however, donations are welcome and will qualify a donor for a one-year membership. Learn more about Loon Echo by visiting www.loonecholandtrust.org. For more information about events, contact Jon Evans at [email protected] or call 647-4352.
