Hiking

Outstanding hike. The four of us hiked the Bigelow Range for the first time, on Wednesday August 5th ( the morning following the rain deluge that practically swamped our tent site). Difficult hike. 12.5 miles, steep ascent and the down trails after summiting Avery and West was long. Not difficult...but long. We parked at the outter parking lot which added 0.8 miles. The conditions were wet both up to Avery....and the descent to South Horn and the pond....but not a problem. Views = spectacular. We were the only ones on Avery and S Horn. Enjoyed this challenging hike on a gorgeous day in the Bigelows.

This trail was great! I’m a big fan of rock scrambling and was not disappointed as the last half mile or so to the summit is just that! It reminded me of Katahdin’s Hunt trail but on a much smaller scale. Views from the summit can’t be beat! We felt great after summiting and decided to trek over to Spaulding. Saw TONS of moose droppings on the ridge between the two mountains. Be warned, it feel MUCH further than the 3ish miles the trail signs say to get to Spaulding. Round trip up Fire Warden’s trail to Abraham summit, then over to Spaulding (where there is not summit view) and back to Abraham and down was just about 15 miles. My watch died around 14.5 miles so 15 miles is just a guess.

Such rewarding views once you reach the top. I found the last half of the hike challenging due to climbing up rock face.

Beautiful! Pretty easy but very footy so wear good ankle protection. Lots of side spots for lake access.

We clocked out of this trail at 10.9 miles. It’s not 8 miles round trip like the trailhead says. The first 3 or so miles are easy, just a lot of flat twists and turns. The steep sections are all together, and it starts right after the campsite about half way in. After you get out of the woods, the rock scramble start. It’s a lot of rock scrambles, with small loose rocks. I wouldn’t recommend bring a dog or child up the scrambles because it seemed too dangerous. This hike took us 6 hours round trip. It was very muddy and very slippery basically the whole time in the woods. We had to cross over 5 streams (yes, I counted) and the first one was very deep and I had drenched my feet. I’m glad I had hiking shoes. Otherwise it could’ve been a lot worse. I recommend hiking poles because they were a lifesaver on the way down. The views were gorgeous though. Beautiful 360 views. Bring bug spray and an extra layer because the top could be super windy!!

2 hours and 19 minutes up loop trail to the top and then about 20 minutes over to the lake and 1 hour down. We took the suggestions to park at brook trailhead and start out with the long walk on the road. Definitely the way to go. Loop trail is very challenging with a lot of pulling yourself up rocks. Super fun but I wouldn’t do it when wet or with dogs/kids! Get an early start because even on a Monday morning the brook trail was very busy going down.

Great Views! Lots of scrambley bits. Ran into people on Jordan Pond and South Bubble, but had the North Bubble onward to ourselves. Shore around Eagel lake is super rocky until just before the Carry.

Beautiful views on this hike at chimney pond and the basin pond. Pretty rocky trail so watch your footing. Felt steep at times but overall pretty moderate, would recommend! Saw lots of families on this trail too.

Gorgeous hike. Like the reviews below, we parked at brook trail head, then walked 1 mile up road to ascend on loop trail, then descended on brook trail. The loop trail is more rigorous and technical- at one point you are climbing through a cave with the help of iron rungs. For this reason, the more casual hikers tend to go up and down only brook trail. Had a lot of fun- views are excellent and swimming in the pond on a hot day was savior. Enjoy!

Most people mention it in the reviews, but SO glad we parked at the Brook Trail parking lot. We walked ~1mile down the road to the Loop Trailhead. Such a fun and rewarding hike— even in the rain! I was simply wearing chacos and my boyfriend had sneakers on. The rock scramble is certainly a fun challenge but not impossible in chacos. I felt it was pretty easy. There was one section we weren’t sure where to go. When it doubt, keep going up! The views are absolutely stunning. Loved our break in the middle at the pond. In rain, it took us about 4.5 hours round trip. That includes a stop at the pond for a quick dip and some photos. 3 hours up and 1 hour down was our active hiking time. I definitely feel rewarded doing the full loop! For those not prepared for rock climbing and fat man’s misery, I would have just climbed up and down the Brook Trail for an easier path.
