Directions brought us right to the parking lot/ trail head. Trail was cleared and marked well. Pretty decent view from the top.

Fun snowy small hike with the pup!

Great little local hidden gem! Some fun elevation change with cool geological features, a nice little lookout, beautiful scenery, and a really pretty body of water off to your left when you're following the red path. We've passed by this spot for years and are so glad we finally decided to check it out. Will add this into our rotation for local romps!

This trail is not maintained very well. This is more of an outdoor survival training kind of trail, rather than a fun recreational trail. There are many dangerous looking widow makers, and the foot bridges have rotting timbers and exposed nails. Going in through the southern trail head took me through a prickly raspberry patch. The northern trail head was better maintained for snowmobiles. Once off the snowmobile track the path was difficult to follow. Did I mention all the poison ivy?

Trails are super confusing and not marked

A great way to spend a few hours. Super-easy walk. Gorgeous views of the water.

Great winter hike! trail was fairly easy and well marked. Went up and down orange.

Great winter hike with beautiful mountain views of Maine and NH! Easy to follow the trail in snow but looks to be very wet/muddy in the spring.

the puppy and I love roaming around Mt. Apatite, blue trail, red trail, we can walk them for hours. the new bike trail is beautiful too

Went for a hike 12/26/2018. Very little snow, but a lot of places with ice on the path. Not much of a view anywhere along the blue trail. Still fun to hike in the woods.

Nice trail for anyone who wants to get out of the bustle of central Belfast for a few minutes. Views of the docks, bay, and passagasawaukeag river. Occasionally an osprey, too.

great trail network in the city...doesnt even feel like youre in portland. beautiful marsh and falls. great spot to bring a dog..
lightly trafficked. good trail running and potential skiing

The comment that dogs must be kept on leash is ridiculous. This park is basically the quintessential dog park. I take my dog there a few times a week, he loves as do I

There are many trails here, with many different parking areas.

A great one for large groups of kids. i brought a group of Scouts once and another time my class of 1st and 2nd graders. Not too easy and not nearly hard for kids!

on Whitecap Mountain

Whitecap proved to be a great winter alternative to Tumbledown, as the road to Tumbledown was closed. I was grateful for my microspikes, but I regretted leaving my snowshoes in the car. We attempted a loop from the orange trail to the yellow; the orange trail was well marked all the way to the summit, but we had to double back on the yellow trail when we learned from a fellow hiker that the trail became impassible. Overall, the views were lovely!

walked blue and red trails a week ago. beautiful quarry areas. trail signs are good in some spots and not well marked in others so you have to pay attention. all in all it was a nice stroll on a beautiful winter day.

nice easy trail for dogs...beautiful pond when iced over. would xc ski herr

Hawk Mountain Trail starts as an incline and remains ascending until the open faced rockscapes at the pinnacle. Timber harvesting plots hug the trail for the first little bit. The path is wide and opens up to almost 360 degree views. It is a great way to pump some fresh air into your lungs and soul! Worth every foot step.

Done this twice. Each time in the winter. Very hard but perfect for a day hike. 2:15 up and 1:45 back. Skipped the eyebrow trail each time which is now a regret. Micro spikes were necessary.

The trail is not marked, so I followed the footprints and ATV track with no views or any points of interest. Good walk on a quiet day though. Did hear some shootings while on the trail.

Enjoyable with a decent view :) the summit doesn’t have any views, but there is a beautiful view just before it. Steep incline up, but easy terrain. Not enough snow for snowshoes, just wore my spikes.

This is a new trail recently opened to the public. Once you hike a short distance the trail spits left and right. The trail has some wet area so you should wear appropriate footwear. It is a nice walk through the woods and thickets.

12/1/18 took my dog along with a friend and her new puppy. Puppy was only 8.5 weeks old, he did wonderfully on the dog trail following my dog who is 2yrs. Both dogs are showing they love to be together.

Well marked and maintained trail that is right in my back yard. Nice sturdy bridges over the wet areas. Great easy hike for kids and dogs.

This is a network of trails through fields and forest with small hills and beautiful creeks and waterfalls in high water. In the winter, the road into the playing fields is not plowed to the end however it is plowed to the first parking lot. Lots of dogs can be found with their owners while visiting this park.
