“This loop will bring you past a number of brooks, and up-and-down a good number of great viewpoints.”— Karl W
You can go either direction around this loop; you can also shorten it or lengthen it as well (see some of the other trail guides). This is a lengthy route but will take you along a few lovely brooks, and up-and-down a lot of steep to moderate hills with excellent views.
Start along the red-blazed Pine Meadow Trail until you reach the white and blue trails. Leave the red trail onto the white Kakiat Trail heading east for about a third-of-a-mile until you reach the black-blazed Raccoon Brook Hills Trail. Head northeast on this trail up Raccoon Brook Hill for a good vantage point. Follow the trail down from the hill along the black blazes until you reach the yellow-blazed Hillburn-Torne Sebago (H-TS) trail. Head left (south) towards the Russian Bear overlook.
Continue along the yellow trail; it will join a light blue trail for a fifth-of-a-mile before heading southwest again on its own. This will take you to one of the best viewpoints (Ramapo Torne). Head down the steepest descent of the run to rejoin the light blue Seven Hills Trail. This will take you back to the trailhead.
