No hiking tour of western Maine would be complete without scaling Tumbledown Mountain’s rocky ridge. Surrounded by higher peaks to the north, Tumbledown compensates for its relatively diminutive height with captivating natural features including a high-elevation pond and sheer cliff faces. It is no wonder that the mountain has become the centerpiece of a major conservation effort. Spearheaded by the Tumbledown Conservation Alliance and the Trust for Public Land, with help from the Land for Maine’s Future Program and the Federal Forest Legacy Program, a coalition of groups are seeking to protect more than 25,000 acres of prime recreational land. This challenging 5.5-mile circuit vividly showcases the fruits of their labor.
