This is a steep, 0.6-mile hike to a pretty view on Mount Tire’m, a roughly 1,060-foot peak. And yes, if you’re wondering, it’s quite tiring! If you carry on past the open ledge at about 0.6 mile, you’ll see a track continuing down that crosses into private property. The public trail here is called Daniel Brown Trail — you’ll see a plaque on a rock near the trailhead. There are humongous boulders at the base of this mountain. You can access them via a faint path off to your left (facing up the mountain) close to the start of the trail.
Directions: At the village green in Waterford, close to where Routes 35 and 37 meet, turn onto Plummer Hill Road. The trailhead is to the left, where there is room for a few cars to pull off.
Hello! When I did a search for Mt. Tire’m, one of the web sites that comes up is yours, the Maine by Foot listing. In the blurb, the point before the 6 is missing, so it looks like a 6 mi. hike. I’ve pasted it in, below. I noticed it because I’ve hiked it and know it’s not 6 miles. When you click on that, to get to this page, it has the .6, but not on the search page. :- ) Terry

Oh yes, another user pleaded with me to add the 0 before all my points in my .X hikes — a very good protocol I’ve adopted, alas, only recently! I’ll work on editing my older posts with those helpful 0.s. Thank you for your note.
