Mount Agamenticus is the largest geological feature in its area of southern Maine, and it can be seen prominently from the coast in places like Kennebunkport and Kittery, as it is much higher than anything nearby. The hill itself isn't terribly long, but it is quite steep in parts, especially the hairpins. When you approach the hill from the East, Mountain Road is fully paved. However, if you continue on Mountain Road past the access road, or approach the climb from the northwest, the road is very bumpy and messy dirt. The pack is mostly firm, but there is a lot of sharp gravel making flat tires a serious risk. A time trial has been run from South Berwick, which includes the dirt sections. However, the race was canceled in 2010 because of the road condition, and it is unclear whether it'll be back in 2011. The hill is quite fun in any case, with great views of the ocean to the east and the Presidential Range (including Mount Washington) to the west.
