Located in western Maine, Tumbledown Mountain is one of Maine’s most popular hikes. With its three craggy, barren alpine peaks dominating the landscape, it is also one of the most distinctive mountains in Maine. At an elevation of 3,088 feet, it is not a particularly tall mountain, but a hike to the summit of East Peak is moderate in difficulty. There is some hand-over-hand rock scrambling just before emerging above tree line, and you should expect significant exposure to cold, wind, sun, and rain in the extensive alpine zone. The higher elevations offer outstanding views of the mountains and lakes of the region. TRAIL SURFACE Dirt and ledge below tree line and rock and granite ledges above.
