Haraseeket is my favorite trail!!

Accurately rated as easy, though there are a few steep points where old pups or people with weak knees might struggle. Beautiful lookout points. The whole loop-de-loop that AllTrails lays out here took us just under two hours, including short stops to take in the views.

hiked this trail with my 3 kids (ages 8-14yrs). we went up the Eagle Scout trail and the Nature Loop trail and came down the Ledges trail, it was a pretty easy hike and my kids loved the stone tower. it was a bit cloudy when we went but it still had great views. a hike i would recommend for really any age or skill level.

Really enjoyed the variety to this hike. We went to the right to start, so up the front ledges. Reading the reviews i was a little nervous about the scramble because i'm not the most confident climber. But i found the ledges fun to climb and my husband only had to help me once. The first half of the trail up was very well marked, looked like someone had recently gone through it and redone it. Going down was a bit tougher (I think their spray paint ran out) but you just had to keep a sharper eye out. Going up the ledges allowed a steady pace with natural breaks up the hill. It looks like if you went up the other way it would just be a straight trek uphill. Would do the hike again.

I really wish the trails were marked better. But it was a nice quiet hike with lots of frogs in the puddles.

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

Great trail! Easy to find and plenty of parking. The trails are well marked and the views were beautiful!

great views, good exercise.

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

An easy short hike with a great view at the end.

We started the trail by following the Eagle Scout trail. There was a few steep spots and lots of big rocks to climb over but the view from the summit was worth is. We followed the loop down to the road back to the parking lot. They do ask for a $3 donation to park

Awesome! Had two young kids with me and they loved it! Especially once we got to the top and saw the stone watch tower; will definitely be doing it again :)

went there last summer and am headed back again. cool little hike.

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

From the beginning to the second stream crossing the hike was very moderate. The bridge at the second stream crossing is in need of some major TLC - as I observed gaping holes in between the floor boards of the bridge due to harsh weather conditions, rotting and continued use. After crossing the bridge, the real hike up began. It was a steady incline with a few leveled out areas so that I could catch my breathe and rest for a minute. Once at the main summit the views of the Saco Valley and the White Mountains were spectacular. On the ledge just west of the summit I could identify Abbott, Hussey and Fort Ridge mountains to the South, the Ossipee mountains to the Southwest and the Presidentials to the Northwest. The old fire tower was in good condition. The bench mark, summit sign and memorial plaque were all in good shape - no signs of vandalism. My wife ate from numerous blueberry and raspberry bushes while at the summit (she said the blueberries were very sweet). The hike up for the faster part of my family was 1hr, 10 minutes. For me and my youngest son it was 1hr, 30 minutes. It took me a little over an hour to get down, and my sons 50 minutes. On the way up and down there are barely any views due to tree cover. Overall it was a great hike for me and my family. I would put 5 stars for this, but that 2nd stream crossing bridge needs to be replaced or repaired.

Went today with my husband, two kids (11 and 13 year olds) and our dog. We as a family go multiple times a summer to these trails. Love this hike. Wonderful day, hot at the top but so worth it.

Great hike with 9 year old, 6 year old, and dog. Took the Boys Chase Loop up to the summit. Awesome payoffs along the way for such a reasonable hike. Would recommend it to anyone with kids.

Fantastic hike with young kids. Little bit of scrambling at the end make it even better for little ones.

Nice hike in the Lake Region area. Relatively quick trek, but there’s a nice stone fire tower with panoramic views at the summit.

It’s a nice short run with good elevation gain and irregular granite and roots. Great for a technical trail run with a few loops. Cool stone lookout tower at the top!!!

We did the Bob Chase trail for an easy 1.5 mile quick hike. If you’re short on time, it’s a well marked trail, very pretty through beech and birch forest with beautiful views and wild Blueberries at the summit.

Great hike with beautiful views!

Made it top in 45 minutes. Best views are from the Eastern summit. Have to pay attention to red blazes on trees and rocks. End of trail is a snowmobile trail before hooking back up,briefly, with Barnes trail

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!

I started hiking last week and this is my second hike. All the trails are up and down for a nice leg workout. Some nice views. My Dog enjoyed it. Hardly any bugs and my Dog only had one tick. Good hike for the young and older folks.

We entered from the Blackstrap Hill Community Forest entrance this time and really enjoyed ourselves exploring. Lots of trails to choose from and very minimal bug activity. The look out has some great views from atop a big boulder. Plan on visiting again

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

Finally checked this place out and love all the intertwining well marked trails I’ll be back for sure!!
