Does "climb Megunticook" mean "climb a hill called megunticook"?

In addition, why did the girl want to run early at dawn?

Context:

"You awake in wonder, you awake
at half past four,
Wondering what wonder is in store.
You reach for your clothes in the
dark and pull them on,
You have no time
Even to wash your face, you have
to climb Megunticook.
You run through the sleeping town;
you do not arouse
Even a dog, you are so young and
so light on your feet.
What a way to live, what a way...
No breakfast, not even hungry. An
apple, though,
In the pocket.
And the only people you meet are
store-windows.”
