Nice meander through the woods. Good for dogs and kids

Beautiful - did three loops if it. Well maintained.

lovely autumn hike. currently a beaver dam prevents passage via loop, unless you've got waders on, but still a great hike.

very enjoyable walk through woods and marshlands (under restoration).

Very nice, clean trail. Pretty level train, nice overlooks into the marshes. No charge to park but on a busy day, I imagine there would be a wait to park!

Just an FYI you have to drive through the cemetery to park at the trail head. The right side of the trail is flooded due to beaver activity but the rest of the trail is still very pretty. It’s a nice little walk in the woods.

Great trail for a relaxing walk. Parking at the school on Sea Rd was good advice. More good advice ...be mindful of the tides. Tides were high this weekend, and when we were returning to our car parked at the school, we found part of the trail submerged. Not just a little. We had to wade through the late October tide. Brrrr!

Easy, well maintained trail. They have some nice educational posts about the surrounding marshes and estuaries. I went on a weekday and it was still moderately busy, I imagine on weekends it gets crowded.

loop has to be done as 2 semicircles because some beavers damned up part of the loop. its pretty cool to see their work and get a little wet explore some wetlands. nice and quiet, didnt see anyone else.

Half of trail is flooded and angry hornets nest at entrance

Entrance is in the cemetery.

Bring you’re rain boots for this trail as one of the bridges is flooded.

Nice walk. When they said kid friendly I thought kids bikes are allowed lol but not. Overall a nice quiet walk.

Caution: trail floods after a rain. Other than that this was a very nice, fairly easy trail.

Leisurely walk, great for families, saw parents with strollers. The boardwalk and path is level and there are numerous benches and lookout points over the marshes. Saw some birds, deer, bugs, all kinds of wildlife! A great 30-45 min outing if you are in Wells or Ogunquit. Brought our dog and she saw tons of chipmunks!

It’s an easy, well maintained trail that overlooks a beautiful river. We saw a large flock of geese on our last walk. Easy enough for our 4 year old- and keeps their attention with all the viewing platforms

Very easy trail with light woods and great views of the estuary. Small parking lot - even on a Monday afternoon it was very full.

It doesn't matter what time of year, this is always a great trail. Pick up a map at the entrance for self-guided stations and stopping points along the way. Beautiful views of the distance surf and a spectacular estuary filled with birds.

it was an easy walk, however nothing was marked and the only signs were for the local wildlife. also, you walk in the middle of an open blueberry field(no shade for hot days!). very quiet

Nice little hike on a lovely April day. I'm sure much prettier later in the spring or fall.

Pleasant walk except for having too many biting insects.

Really nice and quiet trail. Trails are pretty well maintained, easy for kids but there's no way you could do it with a stroller. You'd end up carrying it most of the way.

Park at Sea Road School in Kennebunk (Do Not Follow Directions From This app-leads you way past the school and you'll have to turn around). When you pull into the school you'll see a cross walk (before the parking lot). You'll see a beated path on either side. The right side is a short .30 walk that ends at rail road tracks. The left side (which has a Bridal Path sign at the trail head) is the actual path; 3 miles one way. Very nice, flat, shaded trail with beautiful scenery spots. Keep in mind the numerous houses with barking dogs.

Very easy trail with some nice views. I went a little before sunset and it was very buggy so I would definitely use bug spray
