Located in the Bauneg Beg Mountain Conservation Area, this impressive outcropping of large boulders and overhanging cliff faces forms the Devil’s Den. Named for the sense of enclosure created by the rocks and summit ledges, Devil’s Den sits between Bauneg Beg Mountain’s Middle and North peaks, along Linny’s Way Trail. Hike the easy North Peak Loop starting at the trailhead on Fox Farm Hill Road, about 7 miles northwest of North Berwick. The Bauneg Beg Trail starts at the back of the parking area behind an information kiosk and joins Linny’s Way Trail just before Devil’s Den. Follow the loop to Middle Peak and its lookout, descend into Devil’s Den, and pass over North Peak to finish the loop.
