Located in the quiet northeastern corner of Baxter State Park, the loop over Trout Brook Mountain is an excellent half-day trek that can be done in combination with a number of other short hikes in the area. Traversing classic northern Maine forests along gradual slopes, the journey leads to an open 1767-foot summit and a number of scenic ledges where nearby mountains and the endless expanse of Maine’s vast north woods stand on display. Trout Brook Mountain is a good choice for people of all ages and for those who hike infrequently.

This is a moderate trail in difficulty, with spectacular views. The top of this mountain is covered in wild blueberries - a nice treat for hikers! We did this hike with our children ages 12, 14 and 16. It was a great hike for them as well
