Burnt Meadow Mountain























Highlights:
Short hike, great elevation gain, super views of mountains and lake
Near:
Brownfield, ME
Distance:
2.4 miles round trip
Elevation Gain:
1194 ft
Hike Time:
2 hours
Difficulty:
Moderate
Summary: Three steep ascents leading to small peaks. The second is the hardest because it is tedious. The third is the shortest and steepest - hand over hand climbing may be required. There is loose gravel on the trail making it more dangerous. The view of Mt. Chocorua is very nice. Mt. Washington can be seen.Crampons are a must if you hike this in the winter. A good family hike.
Trailhead: Route 160 approximately 1/2 mile south of the pond. Trailhead is not marked but there is an obvious parking area. The trail starts not at the center of the parking area but on the right side if you are facing into the parking area. (Lat:43.91842 Lon:-70.88285)
