Ridge Trail is a 0.8 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Freeport, Maine that features beautiful wild flowers. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking and snowshoeing.
Nice 20 minute hike. Not much to look at but still, nice to get outdoors.
A very nice hike.
For the most part this is an easy hike, for those who hike. I took a non experienced hiker with me, and he had a bit of difficulty with it.
There are some steeper inclines and the path is not packed earth. Expect tree roots, muddy patches, some narrow trails, and having to follow a trail marker.
The trail markers were well done in all places, except for one place near the day camp. With that said, it was marked within a minute of us walking on the path we thought was correct.
I highly suggest taking the extra time to do the mill stream trail that is located by the day camp. It is a beautiful hike with a lovely stone dam at the end.
I just started snowshoeing this winter and found it perfect for a beginner.
Short, quick, good for beginning hikers. Went with a 9 and 11 year old and they found it too short. Steep at places, but would be good for younger children.
