Tumbledown Brook Trail is a 4.4 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Weld, Maine that offers scenic views. The trail is rated as difficult and primarily used for hiking, trail running, and rock climbing.
Started at 7am and took an hour up and hour back. It had rained the night before so the brooks were flowing. Made a very nice, if wet hike. Very windy and cold this time of year and I'll wait till later in the day next time so the sun can burn off the clouds a little.
11.11.16 Snowflakes and wind for the 2 hour out-and-back hike. Hunters along the road so orange is a good ideas. Pond was choppy and the view was cloudy but cleared a bit in the 10 minutes we stayed at the top . No swimming this time of year, but I wonder if people ever bring skates in the winter? Footing near the top can be tricky with roots and rocks and it being a bit steep. In fact, I went to get a better pair of hiking boots after this hike and would like to return in the summer and do the whole loop and summit.
Great hike. Worth the hike to enjoy lunch.
Diverse trail! Dog friendly! Summits at the pond! Great swimming!
The trail began on a pleasant moderate slope, but became filled with potato sized and larger rocks that made it slow going. About half way up, it got steep and hair pinned back and forth on large boulders and lots of roots. The last few hundred yards was very steep and filled with large boulders. But the beautiful pond at the top and amazing view of Webb Lake and surrounding mountains was SOOO worth it! Another half hour past the pond was the 3000'summit, reached on smooth ledge, not easy but doable. We are 60 years olds in decent physical condition.
It was much harder than I expected a lot of rock/Boulder climbing. But the lake at the top was amazing.
Awesome trail but it's called the "loop trail"
