No ice or snow to worry about. It’s a little bit of a mudslide if you want to walk down to marsh level though.

This is a wide and flat trail. It’s not marked, but it is big enough to drive a vehicle down if that were allowed. Impossible to go off trail, it’s an easy walk down to a pretty bay. Save yourself 15 to 20 minutes at the end for photo opportunities, and just sitting and looking. It has a large parking lot that can fit at least 12 vehicles. it is great for people of all ages no matter what time of year.

Nice out and back trail. However, it is actually in the Town of Brunswick, not Freeport

A great destination for a trail runner or anyone wanting an easy mountain bike ride. Wide flat trail that dwindles down to a narrow footpath leading out to a rocky point. A number of people here to day, all dogs were on leash.

Nice little walk in the woods. The trail is well shaded. There are a lot of roots, but overall the trail is flat.

Went in Mid-March a couple of years ago. Decent trail, easy walk. Not terribly exciting other than a nice view of the bay at the end of the trail. Dog friendly!

Went in mid-March and it was perfect. Snowy trails with melting spots and some icy patches. No bugs and no signs of wildlife but beautiful coastline that you can see opens to the ocean.

The trail follows a ridge line between two ravines and appears to be open year round with a plowed parking lot. Great for snowshoeing and cross country skiing.
