Trout Brook Mountain

Trout Brook Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"Trout Brook Mountain is part of the mass of rhyolite bedrock that includes all the mountains in northeastern Baxter State Park. The hike climbs steadily with several open ledges, offering views north across Grand Lake Matagamon and of the scattered mountains of Aroostook County. The open areas along the trail and the summit are covered with blueberries. As you munch blueberries on the summit, you can look south, through the ever-growing forest, to The Traveler.

The trail up Trout Brook Mountain climbs steadily up the mountain’s northern flank through a mixed forest to the fist set of ledges. The ledge is a steep section of the ridge that won’t hold soil, exposing the crumbling rhyolite bedrock. All the mountains from Trout Brook Mountain south to Russell Pond are the remnants of an ancient volcanic eruption."
