Burnt Meadow Mountain Trail is a 2.4 mile out and back trail located near Brownfield, Maine that offers scenic views. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking.

The Blue trail starts at the very right most point of the grassy parking area directly off the road. The trail head sign is just inside the tree line - about 100 ft from the road. The Blue Trail named "North Peak Trail" will split and you have a choice of the "Blue Trail" or the "Yellow Trail (Twin Brooks Trail)". The Blue Trail is the most direct to the summit and most agressive climbing through woods trails and up rock faces. The Yellow Trail is longer and more gradual assecent to the top. Going up the Blue Trail and down the Yellow Trail will give you an easier decent. The Blue Trail can take about 3 hours round trip while going up the Blue Trail and down the Yellow Trail can take about 4 hours. The Yellow Trail has a nice spring and brooks along the trail.

This trail is not easy to find. It is 487 Spring Rd (Me. Rt. 160) Brownfield, Maine 04010 but using GPS coordinate is probably the best way to locate the trailhead.

The parking area is not marked where you exit the road!

Steep climb with some good rock scrambling toward the top. A bit of a strain for my first hike in 4 or 5 years but definitely worth it. Nice views at several points. We went up and down on the Blue trail and we had a watch our footing in a few places coming down. The Blue trail is really well marked and well worn, we had no trouble staying on it. The summit has a lot of room to lounge for a while and great views pretty much 360 degrees.

Harder than I expected it to be but it was fun. Kids enjoyed the challenge.

What a great view. Not a trail for young kids or old dogs. Some rough rocks to climb near the top. Blue trail is great to go up. Yellow trail is better to go down. Yellow trail needs to be blazed better. All in all a great morning hike.

This was our first hike of the season.it was a very physical hike, but we enjoyed it. The views from the top were amazing. Went up the mountain following the blue trail, and down following the yellow trail. This is my recommendation for anyone, the yellow trail is more within the forest.

Great hike and beautiful views. Very thick, woods, rocky terrain, and some steep sections. Awesome hand over feet scramble towards the top. Highly recommended.

Beautiful winter hike. Steep and rocky close to the summit, incredible views. I hiked this in winter hiking boots but would recommend crampons. Great workout and so far one of my favorite hikes to do for a work out.

Steep pretty much the entire way up. Well worth the hike. Lots of open rock to settle down on at the summit. Would highly recommend!

Great hike. Well maintained trails and well marked. Did not summit (loosing battle with daylight and time) and did not want to hike at night with my 15 month old daughter on my back. Can't wait to get back up there and summit this gem. Defiantly one of my new favorite local hikes.

Nice day hike only an hour from Portland. Took the blue trail up and the yellow trail down, with a side trip over to the southernmost peak as an out and back segment. Great views to the east; some views west, but the trees have grown enough to block those out. Trails well blazed and in good condition.
