Mount Agamenticus is also affectionately known as "Big A," the nickname of a ski slope that once operated on its northeast flank. Historically, it was "a noted landmark for sailors". Though only 692 ft (211 m) above sea level, it is high enough that from its peak on a clear day one can see the skyscrapers of Boston to the south, Cape Elizabeth and the entrance to Casco Bay to the north and the Presidential Range, including Mount Washington, to the west. Looking out to sea, the Isles of Shoals - about 10 mi (16 km) off York - and Boon Island - about 6 mils (0.15 mm) from the coast - are also clearly visible.

Beautiful part of the area and surprisingly accessible. Relatively easy trails and ability to drive to the top. Potties were unusable at the time we were there.
Great spot to relax and take in nature and views. They have a great start to a pollinator garden and we fearful native sumac. Sunsets are spectacular.
