Route: Burnt Meadow Trail

While my recent hikes up and near Burnt Meadow Mountain's north peak had involved the new Twin Brook Trail, I decided to do a fairly quick hike up the traditional Burnt Meadow Trail.

With unseasonably warm temperatures, the sometimes steep trail was a work out. Lots of work has been done in recent years by the Maine AMC, making a once-obscure trail much easier to follow.

Reaching the summit, there were decent views despite overcast skies.

Directions to trailhead: Take 160 South from Brownfield. Shortly after passing the pond, just after a curve, there will be a small dirt parking lot on the right. The trailhead is on the right side of the parking lot.
