Mount Agamenticus, York

4.5
#4 of 6 in Parks in York
Mount Agamenticus is a 692 ft (211 m) high monadanock in the town of York, Maine. The greater Agamenticus region covers nearly 30,000 acres (121 km²) in the southern Maine towns of Eliot, Ogunquit, South Berwick, Wells and York. The area surrounding the summit is a park reservation which provides habitat for wildlife and a venue for recreation. At the mountain peak is the burial place of Mi'kmaq Chief St. Aspinquid.


Mount Agamenticus is also affectionately known as "Big A," the former ski slope's nickname. Not high as mountains go at above sea level, but 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 miles (16 km) off York and Boon Island - about 6 miles (10 km) from the coast are also clearly visible. Historically, it was "a noted landmark for sailors".

  • 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.
