Trail Features:

The  Frye Mountain Trail offers many steep inclines, stream crossings, and rugged terrain. The length of the hike makes it an endurance test in all seasons.


It's a lollipop trail that crosses Frye's summit at 1,122 feet and connects to the Frye Headwaters Trail at its northern terminus. It is also a section of the Hills to Sea Trail.


The trail guides hikers through unique and lush forests: hilly hemlocks, clusters of birch, and beech under towering pines.  The Bartlett stream offers a different experience each season. 

The trail is located within the 5,240-acre Frye Mountain Wildlife Management Area.

From the intersection of Routes 3 and 220 in Liberty, follow 220 North for 6.5 miles to Walker Ridge Road on the right. Park at the Dept. of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife maintenance building lot and enter the woods at the trail kiosk. Please note that the Hogback Mountain trail is closed at this time. Cell service is not always available on the mountain.
