Known to the locals as Wood Island Light trail or simply the Bird Sanctuary. This site is actually located in Biddeford Pool and was a favorite hang out for a group of friends and myself during our four years at the University of New England... about 5 miles down the road. The first half parallels a golf course and rocky coast (great for tide pooling). Wood Island Light is about half way in then the trail ducks into the woods. Coastline views span from Biddeford to Old Orchard Beach to South Portland. Plenty of wild life to be seen if you're willing to look around. I have seen multitudes of bird, some deer and even some foxes. A flat and short trail but a great place to fly a kite or just relax for an afternoon. *beware during the summer time... lots of visitors (canadians) who can be very pushy.
