Clearwater Brook Trail
State: ME
The Clearwater Brook Trail was once part of the Appalachian Trail, from South Arm Road through the area between Elephant Mountain and Old Blue Mountain. The Appalachian Trail would later be rerouted over Old Blue Mountain.

Though abandoned and logged over, portions of the Clearwater Brook Trail are sometimes used by bushwhackers headed to Elephant Mountain.
