Mead Mountain loop trail . A difficult hike with good rewards !

Flying solo with 4 kids and a dog. It isn’t a flat trail by any means but enjoyable. Like others have said it gets steeper towards the top but the views are amazing!

Favorite hike in region. Great for children. Nice views from top. We often stop to pick blueberries half-way. Nice open areas on top to have lunch.

Had a great time up the mountain. Cardio on the way up, Strength training on the way down. Love this hike in our back yard.

What an unexpectedly lovely trail with virtually no one there. A very relaxed hike- we walked down to the picnic spot along the river. Then continued around the loop and took the ledge trail where we happened upon a gorgeous overlook with lots of wild blueberries around. And then we enjoyed a nice wooded walk back down to the parking area. Didn’t go to the top of mead mountain as we were exhausted from a backpacking trip. Great place to let the dogs run and enjoy the quiet beauty of the area!

One of my favorite places to hike. beautiful and quiet with lots of wildlife.

I hiked this trail with my 3 year old and my 2 year old was in a carrier. My 3 year old loved it! This was his first hike and he did so well. Trail was fairly easy to walk on, the last .9 miles is a gradual incline to the top.

Easy to moderate trail that is well marked with metal blazes, painted rocks and cairns. Beautiful views from the top.

Easy hike, nice views near top. I would call latter part a bit more moderate effort though.

beautiful trail! Have done it 2x now and the view will not disappoint!

Nice short hike. Close to home which makes it easy to get to after work!

My 2 sons and I climbed this today. We really liked it. I've lived in Orrington my whole life and never knew there where trails here. So excited to have found these.

Beautiful weather for the hike, incredible views at the top with not a cloud in the sky! Trail is steep, but clean and well marked.

Great easy hike. Almost the entire path seems to be paved with a sidewalk of granite. At the top there is an abundance of delicious wild blueberries. Went in early July so that seems to be the time to hit it if you want to try the blueberries.

Did this on February 19, 2017. We had just received a lot of snow in the prior week so everything was deeply covered in snow. That being said, I cannot remark on the trails other than to say the trail markers were clearly visible on the trees. However, the view from the summit offered a very nice panoramic. I think this is deserving of another visit under better conditions.

Make no mistake, it is a mountain. that being said, the trails were well kept and well marked. The view was stunning and well worth the hike up! I would recommend this to anyone!

Great views from the summit and all around. Lots of wildlife to stumble upon and catch photos of =) Very clean and well maintained trails with fool proof directions on maneuvering the mountain. Definitely worth the early morning wake up!!

A bit hard to figure out where the summit is exactly, but it's a great, easy hike!
