Although its only 1900 feet high, Borestone has the characteristics of a mountain that is three times its height. Its distinctive summit cone is rocky and affords great views of the 100 mile wilderness area of Maine's northern forest and mountains. The hike is short but fairly steep and technical near the top, which makes for a great family hike with older children (9+).
From Monson, take the Elliotsville Road, which is marked by the Audobon Society sign. Continue over bridge, turn left, cross the railroad tracks. 0.1 miles later is the trailhead. There is a parking area on the left.
