Old Clearwater Brook Side Trail to summit of Old Blue Mountain
A trail section in the Baldpate District is looking for a new Maintainer.
This trail section starts at the summit of Old Blue Mountain and continues for 1.5 miles to the Old Clearwater Brook side trail. The elevational change is about 800 feet.
Access is not the easiest, but beautiful views are available from the summit. The current access point is as follows:
- From Andover, Maine, head east on ME-120. After 0.6 miles, turn left on South Arm Road. Drive on South Arm Road for 7.6 miles. Parking is along the widened right shoulder after the AT crossing of the road. The trail heads east for 2.8 miles to the summit of Old Blue where the trail section starts. It is a hike, steep at times, to start the workday, but a nice view is available at Black Brook Notch about a mile from the summit.
- Section: 87
- End Points: Old Blue Mountain north to the Old Clearwater Brook Side Trail
- Distance: Approximately 1.5 miles
