Another great, short hike. I have hiked it several times with my dog. It is great for dogs who like water and get hot easily - there is a "lake" at the top and my dog loves to swim in it when we get there.

Me and a friend just climbed this mountain a couple days ago. We took the brook trail which was a very leisurely trail. We rucked with heavy packs for a nice workout and to camp. The only complaint I have about the hike is that I was pretty disgusted at the amount of trash I saw on the trail and around the lake. Me and my friend picked up some stuff that we could take down in our small trash bag. I think the accessibility of the mountain makes it a party spot for people as there were lots of broken bottles and chopped down trees surrounding the lake. Also hopefully families will clean up their messes in the future, I loved the scenery of tumbledown, not every mountain has a water source so beautiful on it like that and I will definitely return here again soon to experience it with others. I will be bringing some gloves and trash bags as well...

Great hike... A bit of challenge spotted throughout. Up loop and down loop was tough but glad I did it.

Unbelievable hike! This is my all time favorite hike. So challenging (even if you are in decent shape) with the most rewarding views. We always park at the bottom of Brook Trail, and walk about 2 miles up the road to the Loop trail head. Its a very strenuous hike up - not great for dogs (although I have seen people do it) or young children. Loop trail is full of interesting 'landmarks'/obstacles and beautiful views. I don't think there is a boring moment in the whole trail. If you go in the Summer, you can take a dip in the lake at the top. The water is clean and refreshing. The foliage is beautiful in the Fall, too. Brook trail is easier and takes far less time to decent. All in all, takes us a majority of the day (including time at the top for relaxing).

The most spectacular hike I've been on. In fact, it has inspired me to venture out weekly with my dog to see more of what Maine has to offer.

NOTE: I parked on Morgan's Road (off of Byron's road), hiked up Parker's Ridge and down Brook Trail...big mistake. Brook trail brought me to a different parking lot two miles away. I should have been more careful.

Climbed in October of 2013. We went up the Loop trail and down the Brook trail. The Loop trail is definitely my favorite hike to date. It's quite technical and very steep but the views were outstanding and the experience was worth the effort.
We had this trail to ourselves as the difficulty dissuades the crowds. Not a good trail for kids or dogs. The top of the mountain features and alpine lake (which two of our companions plunged into on arrival despite that it had been snowing earlier that day). Going down on the Brook trail was steep in a couple of spots near the summit but overall very easy going, even a little boring getting down toward the bottom.

Went up the Loop Trail, (not knowing that this is MUCH more challenging than the Brook Trail), with 50lb packs to stay overnight. Do not underestimate this trail. It was AWESOME, but we did need to remove packs to get them up the chimney, and it would be almost impossible to get your dog through if you were to take one. Not for young kids.
