Great views. Went up blue and down yellow. Yellow is really poorly marked. Did a lot of circles. But fun quick easy trail

I rated this trail a year ago and gave it a poor rating because my group and I never found the summit. This year, we came better prepared, although we still ended up having to use an online map because we missed a spot where we were supposed to turn and ended up down the wrong path. We spent quite a bit of time out there before I gave in to the map and realized we were going the opposite direction of where we were supposed to. We did eventually get to the destination AKA the summit, and the view was beautiful, so I'm glad we actually found it this time. There is also an alternate "detour" right now because the original path is washed out from all the mud, as if this trail weren't already confusing enough. Definitely pay attention on this one and bring your map!

Up and back on the blue blazes trail, beautiful this time of year with the leaves and fall color. Might not be as breathtaking in other seasons. Also might not be as slippery on the way down :)

beautiful day hiked up the blue trail. Returned on the yellow which was a bit of a challenge to follow. Faded paint the color of the leaves, not enough of them. Some tied on plastic ribbons helped but frequently we had to stop and search out the trail. It was beautiful in the woods

North Peak/blue trail up was steady climb with short steep scramble to summit. Best views were from ledges on the way up. Had trouble finding Twin Brooks/yellow trail down. No trail sign at top. Trail was fine until it veered away from the brook heading to the left. With logging slash , markings were not easy to find. I and two other people (we weren’t hiking together) went back and forth, up and down. I finally put the sun at my back and carefully scanned forest floor,. Others had lost the trail and made efforts in wrong direction. I found it andI got to the Twin Brooks/North Peak sign soon after. I was relieved to get on the well-used trail. I had done this trail seven years ago before logging and enjoyed it. I’ve been hiking for decades but have only had one other similar experience. The yellow markings need to be upgraded on lower half.

This is a nice 3.4 mile loop that can get your heart pumping! My friend and I decided to go up the blue trail. The trail was decently markerd. It had a good mix of steep inclines and flatter sections to catch your breath. Coming down on the yellow trail had us going off the trail or getting turned around because of the poor trail markers. About half way down the trail markers started changing color, with none improving trail clarity. The trail was gradual hike down the mountain. None the less, there were great views along the trail and at the summit. This is a nice 2-3 hour hike only an hour from Portland!

Beautiful views! Recommend going up blue and down the yellow trail. The yellow blazes were a bit hard to follow as leaves are covering the trail but not impossible!

very nice, easy hike. great view for minimal work. trail is pretty clear until you get to this fork in the road landing where you can end up going a few different ways. i kept the allhands trail map with me closeby so i could tell when i was going the wrong way - would recommend. the path you end up taking is very hard to notice. overall great hike and views. will be perfect in about 10 days in peak foliage.

Too many dogs. It was mostly nervous dog owners with their unsocialized dogs. Then there were the bros with their pitbulls off leash. Save this hike for winter week days and you might get to enjoy it.

This is pretty trail. Great workout on the way up. It’s a little steep but not too difficult. I took the long trail down and the first half was majestic however it got a little boring during the last mile. Marked fine if you pay attention.

I found this to be a moderate to difficult hike. Not well marked. I would suggest bringing blue and yellow and remarking trail. There is a scramble at the end and a beautiful view at the top. Blueberry’s to pick at the top during the summer. I would use caution bring dogs it may be to much for some dogs.

Great hike, part of the trail goes thru a logging operation. Trail is well marked and good walk for the dog!

Hiked the blue trail up with my fiance and our black lab. Trail was well marked and has some great views. After a little searching we found the yellow trail and took that back down. Overall it was a good hike besides the yellow trail not being marked very well.

Such a great solo hike, took my 14 year old mini Doberman pinscher along she did very well given her age. I ended up carrying her most of the way, which was an amazing work out to add to the already beautiful hike. Had lunch at the top took us 2.5 hours round trip. Met a great person on the trail. My day was made. Highly recommended spot.

Great day hike that takes you to the back woods of Maine. I would recommend going up blue and down yellow, although blue is a quicker elevation climb with a scramble at the end (near the top). I would say it will take the average person about 1hr to get to the top and just over and hour down. The top is gorgeous! I read and heard people complain that they didn’t know they were at the top, but it was obvious in my opinion (you can’t go any higher and the trail after starts to go down). The trail is nicely marked for the most part but lost the trail a couple times on the yellow trail towards the end (probably fatigue brain). Some bugs, but not bad! Stop reading this and GO DO IT!

We loved this trail. the only problem was lack of a sign at the summit which made us take the wrong path down. make sure you take the yellow trail down!
