7/26/10 Round Top Mountain
This was a new one for us. It is in the Belgrade Lakes Region near Rome, Maine. A nice day with less humidity and lower temperatures. The trail is mostly a pleasant woods walk with gradual elevation gain.
The short Spur Trail takes you out to a ledge with a nice view. We met a man there who took our picture.
Continuing the loop gave us a couple of other nice views.
When we completed the loop we decide to check out the South Vienna Mountain Trail. This was primarily an old road which was becoming overgrown.
We followed the trail for about a half hour -very gradual climb, leveled out, and then dropped until it seemed to stop at a snow mobile trail. We traveled south on that trail for another half hour but it was pretty much more of the same so we turned and retraced our steps back to where we had begun. A pleasant hike 4-1/2 hours
