Pretty nice trail. Non-technical, well maintained (many trees had been cut back, grass mowed, mostly pine straws). Very easy to access by foot from Freeport. No obvious map(s) was a drawback.

Apparently the parking lot also works for early Monday AM, pre-work, back-of-the-truck hookups as we’ll since I bore witness to such a hookup.

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

Good views of Maquoit Bay!
Do not forget to bring your bug spray!
Hopefully they cut the two trees out of the way of the trail!

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

Trails looked like they haven't been maintained in years and half of the trails were blocked due to blowdowns. Pretty bummed. Also no trail map to be found.

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

The large, shallow lake and surrounding wetlands are excellent habitats for waterfowl and a wide variety of birds. Over 158 species of birds have been identified in this area. Some include Tree Swallows, Canada Warblers, and Scarlett Tanagers as well as waterfowl. There are two loops with the orange loop going around the lake and a blue trail which follows a brook. You can do either loop or both depending on the time you have to spend.

Great views of Maquoit Bay.!!!

great hike overall. Nice hike in snow as well.

Well marked trail through the woods, at this point the trail is covered with down trees from the wind storm. Many areas you have to climb up and over debris or leave trail to get around giant trees. The kids loved the challenge and want to go back.

I ate dinner on a cliff as the tide was coming in. Beautiful area with dense trees, and views of Freeport Harbor along with wildlife.

great relaxing hike!

We went 5 days after the big storm and the trails had debris but were nearly all cleared for hiking. It was beautiful, particularly the view of the bay!

So lovely to be able to walk both along the cliffs and inland. The trails were relatively easy and the views of the islands and water were refreshing. Everything is well marked and you can easily extend or shorten a hike to how you are feeling that day.

This trail was our almost 2 year old son's first "official" hike. He pretty much ran close to the entire 2.1 mile Casco Bay trail. No lie, we had to make him sit for a quick snack/water break halfway through, and there were times we had to speed up our pace to keep up. There were several small bridges to cross, some rock installations to guide runoff for melting snow in spring, and lovely scenic view spots with benches to enjoy the view for a bit. We went on the weekend, but the trail felt private most of the time. Only occasionally did we cross paths with other hikers. Wolfe's Neck Woods State Park is perfect for an easy, yet quiet hike, as an alternative to nearby Bradbury Mountain which is always bustling with people. If you want to stay close to home, but still feel like you are almost alone in the woods, this is the place for you!

Easy hike with minimal elevation increase/decrease, suitable for many skill levels. Breathtaking ocean views. This makes for a quick but lovely adventure!

My Wife and youngest daughter loved it. It is a beautiful spot, but I like a little more elevation.

Beautiful hike. Well maintained park. Dog friendly.

Beautiful park and peaceful hike along multiple trail offshoots. The bits along the water were sublime. We had a dog with us, and he loved every bit of it.

I live close by so this is my go-to park to walk my dog. Never gets boring summer or winter. Nice walks through the woods and along the shore. Regularly see osprey and occasionally a seal out in the bay.

This is one of our favorite easy, short-on-time hikes. Wooded, classic Maine coast scenes, close but not so close so that you don't feel like you got away. Easy and perfect for visitors who are not hikers. Can be busy, but never feels crowded.

Beautiful sights, including that of the resident Osprey nest. Just incredible.

Very easy trail, great for walking the dog. Ends with some great views of Maquoit Bay. If you live in the area try it out!

A nice 2 mile trail. Some incline makes for a nice workout early in the snowshoe season.

Great place for small kids. My 3 year old walked the whole loop without a single complaint.
