Haraseeket is my favorite trail!!

Beautiful shoreline spots to stop at as you hike along. A better-than-aight Park!

Love this trail and the variety of terrain encountered along the way! A bit difficult to follow through the campground, but otherwise clearly marked the entire distance. It does hit asphalt for a couple small sections, but otherwise single track trail nearly the entire way.

Great little hike, diverse terrain, nice views of Casco Bay.

Good sandwiches at the local deli nearby.

Fairly easy trail hike even with a family of little kids, once you get to the ocean it is great to be isolated from the crowds

This hike starts out by walking through a field of beautiful wild flowers. Once you pass through the tree line the trail steadily gets steeper and steeper. Once you get to the second viewpoint and take in the scenery the hike levels out but doesn’t really lead to anything

We hike this one quite a bit. Its got a steep section near the beginning that is a good work out and the view from the top is decent. There are a couple spots where it's not completely clear where to go, but nothing too bad and overall its not too hard to find your way.

We loved the marsh, Mountain View of the marsh meeting the ocean and the quiet beach at the end. There was a hatching of mosquitoes right before we came, but the man at the entrance post was prepared with repellent to share. It mostly kept them off us, but they started flying into our car as soon as we opened the doors. They were a small inconvenience for all the beauty we were able to enjoy. There are no bathrooms so find a stop to go before getting there because we had to go back. Overall, we enjoyed the hike.

Wonderful little introduction to hiking for kiddos. All levels can do this. We bring a blanket and picnic and spend the day on the beach. Our daughter loves this!

Waterfront views are awesome if you like walking along the rocks on the shore.

Very steep trail and not the best views at the top. It was also really buggy so bring bug spray if the bugs bother you. No dogs allowed for some reason. I did this hike with a 3 year old who has done many hikes and would rate it as hard for such a little person. The footing was also difficult do to the rocks and leaves making everything feel loose.

A bit buggy, but the trails are well maintained. Good place to take an afternoon stroll.

Nice hike with plenty of wildflowers and a nice view partway up. However, the trail is not always marked, and there are a few confusing side trails that may lead you astray. When you get to the large uprooted tree in the trail, go around to the LEFT of it to stay on the trail to the summit. There's a well-marked trail on the right that will take you down to a gravel road, so avoid it if you're heading to the top. If you find yourself heading down, you need to turn around!

Great hike to a cool wetland with tons of nests. Bring bug spray, the mosquitoes are relentless.

a beautiful and peaceful hike. I do it as a loop in about 70 minutes. spend time at the first "summit" to take in those gorgeous views. parking is tricky.

I love the trail. I hiked it 7 months pregnant with 4 kids! its steep but fun and worth the view once your at the top.

Easy trail...many moms with strollers. The reward of the beach at the end makes it well worth it. The summit view is pretty, but not the most awesome "wow" view for a summit. Overall, well worth the hike.

Beautiful view! I would say this is quite a hike through the woods. Saw a bunch of wildlife on the way. Will sure be back soon!

Disappointed this trail is no longer dog friendly. I grew up in the area and used this trail often, many good memories. Not anymore though if my well behaved pup can't join. I'm sure there is good reason for this, but too bad nonetheless.

Close to home. Quick and beautiful.

Trying to find a positive..... Well, we crossed one nice little brook. That’s about it. Lots of flooded sections (even taking into consideration the time of year), poor signage, lots of logging activity, and dirt bike riders blowing past us. Too many good alternatives nearby to try this one again.

I live less than 10 minutes from Rattlesnake. I think it is a great quick hike as it is short and steep. There are two viewpoints and as others have said past the second view point the actual "summit" doesn't actually have a view.

Maybe 5 mins from getting off Freeport exit (same road as Transfer station). Limited parking (on the side of the road), but wasn't packed for a Saturday around 3pm. Trails are well groomed and marked. Saw 2 other dogs while hiking (all off leash). There's a few little trails to follow - We went up the summit trail and looped around (about 1.3 miles). At the top of the summit trail there's a bench and map to show what mountains your looking at. Across the street there's some more trails. Sign posted at the very beginning warning to wear orange hunters may be in area. We followed the big loop trail to the back side of the ball park and then turned around. Saw 2 other dogs (off leash). Our total round trip (both sides) was 2.25 Miles!

Solid local hike. Couple of nice boggy areas with some birds. Fairly tucked underneath the trees most the hike.

Would be a great trail run with the amount of different trails you can attack.

Beautiful summit view of the ocean and the beach is an absolute gem. The “trail” is just a road fluctuating between dirt & pavement. The terrain is easy, the incline is a good workout, especially since it’s out & back so you have to climb the mountain twice. I’ll be back
