Tumbledown Mountain

Tumbledown Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"Tumbledown Mountain is not the highest in the line of mountains that stretches from Mount Blue east to Tumbledown, but it is the most spectacular. The climb up the Loop Trail is one of the most challenging in Maine, but the views from the top of the trail and then at Tumbledown’s summit are worth the work.

The hike along Tumbledown’s summit ridge to Tumbledown Pond offers fine views and interesting bedrock beneath your feet. The pond sits in a rounded bowl between Tumbledown and Little Jackson Mountains. It is a popular place to rest and soak in the mountain scenery."

I'm pretty blown away this is the first review. This hike is an iconic Maine mountain. I like taking people up the Brook Trail - plenty of parking, dog friendly, kid friendly albeit a little challenging for kids. The beginning is rather easy, but with a lot of small rocks that can be tricky when wet. The elevation gain is not horrendous, there are just a lot of rocks and roots along the way. Before the summit you need to be prepared to fish or swim because there is a gorgeous pond at the top with an island! I think the total mileage is under 6 miles. Anyway, from the pond you follow a bit of a ridge that can be loaded with blueberries in late august (if you're the first ones there before they are feasted upon by hikers and critters). the views from the summit are just too good. on a sunny day you can see for miles and miles and miles including other mountains and windmill farms. I highly recommend bring binoculars, a telescoping fishing rod with the Panther Martin Trout kit (6 pack of spinners) and don't forget your fishing license. Great day hike!
