Wells Reserve at Laudholm Farm is a 3.8 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Wells, Maine that offers the chance to see wildlife and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round.
This is a beautiful easy hike that cover forest, beach, salt marsh and pond life that has great educational value. We took a combination of trails that covered the outer perimeter of the farm which was 3.8 miles. The trails have combination of forest, salt marsh, beach and pond ecosystems. The trails have several educational posting regarding the ecosystems of the plants and animals in each of these areas.

Great place to spend the day. Beautiful walking trails with amazing views. The beach is fantastic.
Great beach and boardwalk trail! Bring a picnic lunch.
Nice walking trails.
Beautiful, and very well-preserved and maintained. Small admission fee. Easy, easy hiking. Lovely property. Beach, pastures, wooded, marsh. Will come again and spend some time at the beach.
We did a mixture of trails that took us along the outer perimeter of the farm. This was about 3.8 miles. The trails were marked with education posting regarding the plants and animals surrounding each sub-ecosystem in the park from forest, salt water marsh, ocean and ponds. Make sure you bring bug spray.
Beautiful area but come armed with bug spray in late summer. Very buggy on some paths near the estuaries (and I'm from Miami). Also gate attendant warned about deer ticks. Again, bringing bug repellant will allow you to enjoy this pristine area. As a previous reviewer mentioned, there are 7 miles of trails.
One of my favorite local spots to go for a walk. The entire trail system is closer to seven miles in length going from fields to estuary, woods and even connects directly to Wells beach.
Laudholm Farm is a wonderful little getaway along the otherwise busy and crowded Southern Maine coast. It offers nice views and a very interesting boardwalk trail through a coastal estuary. There are also trials along the edges of a number of pastures and through a costal forest of what was once a large working farm. You can spend a couple of hours or a whole day exploring the areas in the estuary or farm fields and see Deer and countless shore birds. The trails vary in length from a mile or so to 3+ if you do several of them in one visit, all are easy.
