Comments
Comments: A great hike on a tremendous day! Little Jackson and North Tumbledown are my two favorites in that range, so I decided to hit both on the same hike. Views were incredible in all directions. No crowds on these trails or herd paths, as everyone takes the Brook Trail or Loop Trail. The herd paths down from Little Jackson to Tumbledown Pond and to North Tumbledown and back were in good condition and generally easy to follow. Hard to get a better hike than this in Western Maine!
