this has been my dog walking grounds for a couple years now, as well as my childhood woods. Excited to see some trails put in. You cant go wrong with an apple orchard right next to the trail!

Great walk through the woods to the shore of one of the biggest lakes in Maine. The views are to the west and Mt Washington can be seen on a clear day.

A wonderful walk through thick forest next to the Randall Orchards. Be sure to buy to apples in the fall. The trail meanders over uneven ground and marked with blue blazes and a few trail signs. Should be a good snowshoe hike in the winter and will have to return after a good snowfall. More trails are expected in 2019 and 2020.

There is a new parking lot on Rte 35 between Rte 237 and the railroad track. Fox Run is just a few yards behind the lot.

These reviews are for the trails them selves, not the pedestrians they come across.

*Great hike with my dog and my 6 year old daughter.

this was actually a good day out biking. it would have been 5 stars except for the bridge crossing. first time through a group of kids were blocking the path. they had absolutely zero respect for anyone. we stopped so they could step aside and let us through. as we passed, o e of the kids grabbed the safety flag of the trailer I was pulling with my dog in it. the kid snapped the flag right in half. on the way back through, I gave the kids plenty of notice when I asked if they would step aside this time and let us pass. this time they wound up forcing my trailer, with my dog in it, over the edge of the trail into the railroad tracks. this turned into a very mouthy 13 or so year old being a complete ass. really took a lot out of what could have been a perfect day.

Great trail with easy parking. We're local, so we took our boat over this time. This is the last section of east shore to swim before the water district. Amazing place!

Easy without much excitement - beautiful view at the end though

This trail was quick and easy with a 2 year old on my back. The beginning is a little confusing with the bulldozer trails that are criss crossing right now. Once you’re past the first 1/4 mile it’s marked well and easy to meander through. The beach at the end is beautiful. Make sure to bring a towel!

Finally checked this place out and love all the intertwining well marked trails I’ll be back for sure!!

Been on this trail what's with the map. Trail is nothing like the map. An yes we live in Maine but that still doesn't give you the right to just let your kids walk back alone in this trail......

This was a fun hike for my wife, my dog, and I! The trail was kinda confusing at first, but we figured it out. And there was lots of bug activity due to some stagnant water at the beginning of the trail, but applying bug spray kept them off. But what was spectacular about this hike was Sebago Lake at the end of the hike! The beach was perfect for all of us to swim in and the water was very clear! I would imagine this hike gets moe popular in summer, but we were the only ones there so it was perfect!

Also mixed feelings about these trails/area in general for hiking. There are a lot of opportunities to explore, but the area was a little confusing at first. I started on a trail that went downhill behind a kiosk, it led to some railroad tracks and I pretty much made it up from there! Some trails venture off from that area, but I didn't get a chance to check them out. The railroad track trail led to the YMCA Otter Pond Campgrounds. It was a nice adventure, good place for fishing and exploring with kids and dogs. Don't forget to fill out a land use permit!

I love bringing my dog to this trail for walks. Unfortunately, not all dog owners keep their dogs on a leash. We only had a close call once, most other dogs are good when off their leash. They have been doing a lot of work lately in creating new trails, their is plenty of tree coverage in the summer and nice wide trails.

I have mixed feelings about these trails. They are wide, well maintained, and available for a variety of activities. They aren't particularly picturesque though as there has been a lot of equipment in clearing areas out. It is possible to hear traffic as well from the busy roads surrounding it. If you like to listen to music, this won't be a problem. Also, the wetlands boardwalk is currently being repaired so you will be unable to use it.

I attended Otter Pond camp as a kid so its fun to visit now. Easy trails. Fun to bike in from Westbrook along the Sebago to Sea trail too.

Very well marked network of trails. Some trails are more like roads which, to me, is less appealing. Road noise and ongoing nearby semiautomatic gunshots diminished the experience of communing with nature. When you arrive you need to fill out a permit form at the kiosk. Trail starts by going downhill behind kiosk and following the tracks down toward your left. From there you'll start to see trail signs.

You could wander all day on these trails. Beautifully kept, they meander through the woods and surprise you with sudden gems like vernal ponds and so many critters and birds. Trails are well maintained and marked. Trail map is clear and easy to read. Best part is it's right around the corner from my house :)

Started from MDT at what I assume is near mile marker 17 and ran down the STS trail to mile marker 13. It was just the run I was looking for! No cars to worry about, beautifully maintained, just enough people to let you know you're not alone. I was going to just walk it, maybe a few miles and turn back. I didn't expect to like it enough to go 8miles! It is paved, except the MDT, but the way I went it was downhill out and uphill back, which saved my knees for sure. I'll do this one again for sure! Maybe work up to doing the whole thing!

This is a well defined, well marked series of trails. Easy walking with occasional benches for breaks. Good for all seasons and all trail activities.

I've walked this trail many times - never all the way in one session though. Today we walked from South Windham back towards Sebago - the snow is basically all gone and aside from a few muddy spots off the paved trail, it's in really good shape. Lots of warblers, chickadees and phoebe's singing away and not that many people on the trail. My son biked while the dog and I hiked along. Very relaxing!
