Old Speck Mountain can be found in Grafton Notch State Park in Newry. The Old Speck Trail is 7.6 miles round-trip and it is described as a being a challenging trek. But it’s also described as being well worth the effort because the views from an open observation tower are breathtaking. Dress accordingly, bring water and snacks and have a heck of a good time in the great outdoors. Old Speck Mountain is 4,180 feet, making it Maine’s third tallest.
