The hike on Mount Cutler may be the best mountain hike in Maine that doesn’t reach the summit. The trail climbs steeply up the mountain’s east face, with fine views of the Saco River valley. Once on the ridge there are several overlooks with expansive views. From the notch you can bushwhack to the actual summit of Mount Cutler. Mount Cutler is one of the mountains west of Hiram known as Sunday’s Rocks. Mount Misery and Peaked Mountain are both higher, but untrailed. According to Captain Henry Young Brown—for whom nearby Brownfield was named in 1791—the name Sunday’s Rocks appeared on a map he had seen. The mountains were named for an Abenaki sagamore who supposedly fell to his death from the cliffs on Mount Cutler.
