Max Patch

This is a question I get from every hiker, “Have you been to Max Patch yet?” There was so much hype surrounding this hike that I was a little nervous it wasn’t going to live up to expectations. The views from this hike were truly breathtaking. I have never seen anything like it. 360 degrees of beautiful views of mountains.

I know there are several trails leading to the Max Patch summit, varying in lengths, we did the 4(ish) mile loop that ends at the summit. Everything about this trail was just gorgeous. So many beautiful views. The hike itself was easy and the trail was well maintained. If you like berries you might want to save this trail for the summer. The paths are full of blueberry bushes! Perfect for a picnic. And once you reach the summit the wind picks up, making it a perfect spot for flying a kite!

Because of the wind I do suggest bringing layers. For most of the hike I was warm in shorts and a tank top, but on the summit I was freezing. Luckily I had a warm jacket with me.

I seriously would do this hike again in a heartbeat just to see those views again! Absolutely amazing! Although, the drive to get there is a pretty long one, and a there’s a good section of gravel roads with some big pot holes so keep that in mind!
