    Tori Bachman reviewed Hadlock Community Forest

    about 1 year ago

    What a great find! We landed here accidentally today, and already I want to go back. Well groomed and marked trails. Just a couple miles for the entire loop, so totally family-friendly. Perfect on a fall morning and I can't wait to check it out in winter, as well. 15 minutes outside Portland.

    Tori Bachman reviewed Mackworth Island Trail

    about 1 year ago

    I live in Portland so Mackworth is my go-to when I just need some fresh air and trees. It's a quick walk around the loop, but at low tide it's fun to beachcomb around the island too. Beautiful views across Casco Bay.

    Tori Bachman reviewed Jordan Pond Full Loop Trail

    about 1 year ago

    Jordan Pond is a much longer hike than you think it is, and the left side is much more challenging than the right. We've done it a few times, once with a toddler in a pack on my back and other times when our kids were older. The most recent time we decided it's probably not our favorite - the lake is beautiful, as are the Bubbles in the distance, but otherwise it's not a very interesting hike.

    I haven't tried this trail with my own kids, but I hiked it quite often as a child myself. Beautiful views, a few cliff-edge picnic spots, but really crowded.

    This might be my favorite trail in Acadia. The view from the summit is stunning. It's just challenging enough to make you feel like you accomplished something. And my kids (ages 7 & 12) not only could handle it but also thought it was exciting.

    Tori Bachman reviewed Presumpscot River Preserve Trail

    We've hiked this trail twice - the first time it was early spring and we had to turn back because the parts of the trail that weren't covered in ice were thick with black mud; the second time was mid summer and much more enjoyable, though we still didn't make it more than a mile or so. The first half mile is not so pretty, but once you go under the highway overpass it gets better. There are a couple swimming hole spots along the way. Mosquitos were enormous and plentiful in July!

    We discovered Gilsland by happy accident. It's lovely! Little bit of woods, little bit of meadow, little bit of marsh and water views. Perfect to burn some kid energy and view birds, wildflowers, and bugs.

    Tori Bachman reviewed Bradbury Mountain Summit & Northern Loop Trail

    about 1 year ago

    My kids like this trail - quick and challenging going up to the summit, then you can pick from a number of trails to come back down. The view from the summit is lovely, though it can be a bit crowded especially in autumn.

    Beautiful walk, well maintained trail. I'd like to see it in autumn.

    Tori Bachman reviewed Hedgehog Mountain Trail

    about 1 year ago

    Peaceful woodsy trail, seemed like a short hike and I'm not sure we found the summit, but maybe we weren't really on the main trail. Also must remember to wear blaze orange in fall and winter months, as there's hunting permitted here.
