To Get There
Hiking: Take Rt. 117 East from South Paris for 5.3 miles. Turn South onto Streaked Mountain Road. The trailhead is 0.5 miles past the power lines, which go straight up the mountain.
 
Biking: Take Rt. 117 to Sodom Road, 1 mile West of center Buckfield. Follow for 2.3 miles to an intersection with a small island of trees. This is what is sometimes known as "Times Square". Park off of the road, so as to allow large logging trucks to pass without hinderance.

The Hebron Academy Outing Club maintains the trail beginning at the Streaked Mountain Road trailhead. The climb is steep, but short, from the South Paris side. The trail is only 0.5 miles but goes straight up (see photo).

The Buckfield side of the mountain has many old roads and trails. This side is a favorite with those with Off-Road Vehicles, ATVs and Mountain Bikes. From the Sodom Road, the trails climb almost 1,200' in approximately 3 miles. But, if you are new to the area, be sure to carry a map and compass. The many intersections and trails can be confusing and you should be able to reorient yourself if you become lost.
 
Blueberries Blueberries
Blueberry season begins some time in June and carries into July. Nothing beats a handful of fresh picked wild Maine blueberries on a hot summer day.
 
Rockhounds visit the mountain and can often be found chipping away with small hammers, collecting minerals and rocks on the open ledges.
