Round Mountain, near Bethel


  • Preserve Size: NA
  • Trail Mileage: ~1.9-mile hike
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: moderate to strenuous
  • Sights: views, (summit is 1,827 ft.)

This is a beautiful hike up a smallish, privately owned mountain. According to Maine Trail Finder, the owners maintain the trail, which is good of them. And they do a nice job, as the trail is easy to follow. To go up, around the small loop at the summit, and down, you’ll walk just about 1.9 miles. The loop at the summit has steep sections — this is a deceptively easy mountain! But the views are splendid.

Directions: From Route 5/35, turn onto Vernon Street, and then bear right onto Hunt’s Corner Road. Go 1.2 miles to the parking area on the left.


Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
