  • Tumbledown and Little/Big Jackson Mountains — A glorious hike, probably the most popular in Maine. Strenuous hike to a beautiful summit (Tumbledown) with a mountain lake. My map is unfinished. 
  • Blueberry Mountain — A steep 1.4-mile climb to rewarding views. 
  • Mt. Blue — A steady 1.5-mile ascent takes you to a lovely summit and observatory tower.
  • Center Hill — If you don’t feel like climbing a grueling mountain, check out this sweet half-mile nature trail with gorgeous views.
  • Mt. Blue State Park Campground Trails — You can do a 2.5-mile or 3-mile loop in the park. It’s mostly wooded, except for a section along the lake.
  • Mt. Blue State Park X-C Ski Trails — Fifteen miles of groomed classic trails for Nordic skiing. Call ahead for conditions.
  • Bald Mountain-Saddleback Wind Traverse — A stunning hike, with amazing views. A steep 1.1-mile hike to Bald, another 1.8 miles (with more climbing) to Saddleback. You can also access the  Saddleback summit from the wind farm access road when it is open to hikers, a 3.75-mile hike one way.
