Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Travel on ME 142 heading towards Phillips. Pass the Weld Transfer Station on the right. Soon after look for a sign depicting the Blueberry Mountain Bible Camp on the left. Take this dirt road. This dirt road is passable by any consciencious vehicle. It is a good dirt road but is steep in parts. I negotiated it in two wheel drive just fine. The parking area has a very nice handmade sign. The parking area can hold 20 cars. The dirt road is NOT plowed in winter.

Comments
Comments: This trail leads one to a stupendous view of Weld/Phillips/Tumbledown region at its 360 degree view summit.

The parking area has wonderful handmade signs.

This trail is blazed in blue. Some are very faded but blue flagging tape and intermittent updated blue blazes clearly mark the path. The footpath was discernable among the leaf litter. It is a rough trail on steep grades for 90% of the trail. But what trail in Maine isn't? 😉

This is a traditional Maine trail meaning that you climb, climb, climb to the summit then you slide- I mean descend- down, down, down to the end. I think the bushwhack on Owl's Head in NH was less steep...

The summit is marked with a large carin and geological marker. No sign. 2 hours was the the time we clocked from start to finish.
