Parking Area for Beech Mountain - Valley Trail

Beech Mountain lies between Echo Lake and Great Pond (Long Pond on some maps). Its summit is easy to reach from either the Beech Cliff parking area or the pumping station area at the foot of Great Pond. Beech Mountain can also be climbed on its southwest flank, beginning at the south end of Great Pond. An added attraction near Beech Mountain is the Beech Cliff-Canada Cliff area just to the east of the Beech Cliff parking area. These rugged cliffs offer spectacular views of Echo Lake. {from Maine Resource Guide}
