This was a lovely trail! I have to second other reviews to say that this trail should be marked as easy rather than moderate. It’s a gorgeous walk, with many great places to stop along the shore to take in the view of the water, or perhaps to sit and have lunch. Dog friendly!

Great Walk. I’m Not certain I’d call this moderate. Definitely more easy. Rocky coast to sandy beach shore. Such a beautiful day. Dog friendly and Can be off leash as long as they are well behaved.

Easy trail, but be careful of tree roots and slippery rocks. Took the Old Farm Trail to the Shore Trail and it was simply beautiful. From the parking lot, if you start following the Old Farm Trail up the hill you’ll notice there’s been some selective cutting & logging, but continue on because it does turn into a very nice trail. From Old Farm Trail, be sure to bear off to the right to follow the Shore Trail. You’ll hit Dodge Point, Pebble Beach, Sand Beach, and Brickyard Beach. I did not try the Ravine Trail, but rather jumped back onto the other end of the Old Farm Trail once I had followed the Shore Trail to just beyond Brickyard Beach. This brought me back to the parking lot. My total was 3.4 miles.

My husband and I walked this and so far it was one of our favorites of our vacation in Maine this year. This is a very well kept trail and very well marked (except for the last map at the end of the trail that says you are in a slightly different location than you actually are). So many beautiful vistas and we loved the hike through all of the pines. The breeze was wonderful that day and the dock was a perfect spot for lunch, enjoying the sun and water. If we were to walk the trail again, we would start off going to the left, so we could reach the dock nearer to the end as a nice reward to the hike. Definitely a trail to keep coming back to.
