Magnificent Mount Kineo

By Tom Richardson; Videography by Kevin Erdvig

In this short film, Explore New England host Tom Richardson visits Mount Kineo State Park on Maine’s Moosehead Lake to hike its namesake mountain. The 700-foot-tall Kineo—the largest chunk of rhyolite rock in America—presides over a peninsula that was once home to a magnificent Victorian-era summer resort. Today, the mountain makes for an easy day hike, and offers stunning views of the lake and surrounding countryside.
