Local Natural Wonders - Day 37 - Blueberry Mountain and Rattlesnake Pool in Stow, Maine
White Cairn Trail to Blueberry Ridge Trail:
This 3.9 mile loop trail has a little bit of everything—from a start in the woods, to a short but steep climb, to ridgetop views, picnic spots, and blueberry picking—this hike has it all. And to top it off, on the hike back to the trailhead, there is a short side trail to Rattlesnake Pool; one of the most idyllic, clear, and alluring swimming holes in all of Maine - complete with good jumping rocks for all ages.
If you’re not up for a long hike, but want to visit the pool, there is an option to do an easier in and back hike without summiting Blueberry Mountain.
From Fryeburg, Maine, take Route 113 North for 19.4 miles to Stone House Rd. (formerly Shell Pond Road); this will be 0.7 miles north of AMC Cold River Camp. Take a right onto Stone House Road, and follow for 1.1 miles to a locked gate with a small parking area on the right.
