Declared the most visited mountain in Maine, Tumbledown needs little introduction. Its popularity stems from its appeal to nearly everyone; a challenging but relatively short 1.5-mile ascent up the Loop Trail brings hikers to a half-mile bald ridgeline with some of the best western mountain views in the state, and is followed by a gentle descent to picturesque Tumbledown Pond. Both the mountain and the pond are rich with natural history and legend, and Tumbledown’s flanks and twin summits are home to a striking variety of natural communities and several animal species that are rare, endangered, or just plain fascinating.
