I hiked Mount Blue with my brother and his three oldest sons. We were disappointed right off the bat to discover that the Mount Blue Road was closed, and we would have to hike in from there. A fellow who lived at a house nearby told us we could hike in to the trail head in less than a half hour, if we walked briskly.
We took closer to an hour.
As you hike in on that road, you'll come to a fork in the road, and you'll want to bear right, instead of left, staying on the main road. Once you reach the end of this road, it's obvious where the trail head is - there's a big sign marking it.
Once you get to the trail head, you have about 1.6 more miles to hike, and about 1800 feet of elevation to gain.
Most of that is in the woods, so don't expect to see many nice views along the way. As you get near the top, there is a place where, hiking up over a steep section of boulders, you can look behind you and see a nice view. Other than that, all your views (more...)
Mount Blue is part of the Mount Blue State Park. It overlooks Webb Lake, and can be seen from the state park beach on the other side of the lake. From the summit of Mount Blue you can also see Tumbledown, Little Jackson, Big Jackson, and Blueberry Mountain. The summit plateau itself has no views, but there are at least three ledges which are easily accessible from the summit, which provide nice views.
