Decent family
bike ride. Lots of stops between the Waterman drive intersection and bug light. Bug light park is a nice spot to let the kids and or dog romp around.

great time with the trails

Good moderate hike with two small dogs tagging along. Gorgeous views many spots along the way. Didn't do Woodsum or seek out the caves but would love to do them another visit. It was icy and treacherous as a result so keep weather conditions in mind.

tougher than moderate in my book. was very wet with leaves made it more challenging.

IMO on the difficult side of moderate. The terrain itself is pretty consistent and the trails are fairly well-marked but the elevation gain is quite high in a lot of areas. You’ll definitely be sweating on this one! Glad I went in the fall (late September) rather than the summer. For what it’s worth- my tracker (phone) said the hike was more like 7 miles and 2800-2900 gain. There are some slabs on the top that could get pretty slippery. The view on the top is a spectacular 360 view. There is a nice view between 1/2-2/3 of the way up if you don’t feel up to the peak.

Good quick day hike, steady incline, can reach overlook in 40 Mins from base of parking lot.

I loved this trail! I went on a rainy/windy day in November. There were a couple fallen trees to scramble around near the end and waterproof boots are a must, as there were plenty of puddles/mud. However the rain resulted in gorgeous waterfalls running off the cliffs and the ocean waves were breathtaking. I hiked with my dog, we only saw one other group of hikers. This hike was incredibly fun, highly recommend.

Beautiful hike. Great views in the way up. the summit was surrounded by tree unfortunantly. But very worth the hike for all the views!

Was visiting family in Harpswell and couldn’t be happier we visited here. The beach was just amazing. Walking though the fort really gives you an appreciation for the history that took place. Another place I went to but isn’t pulling up on here is Fort Edgecomb. Everything was so beautiful I just didn’t want to leave!

Amazing panoramic views of the bay.

I have done this trail twice and it is amazing! looking forward to doing it again. You can't beat the views. bringots of water and snacks. It takes a while to do and you will need the energy!

Great hike up to enjoy the fall colors. Went up eye brow and down the AT, eyebrow wasn’t a must do and wouldn’t be a good trail to descend. Clear day up top on the fire tower, views were stellar- snow on top made it even better. Took longer than expected due to icy conditions but beautiful hike, another great 4ker.

Great trails and very clean! ☆☆☆☆☆

Great views and awesome beach. We saw Mt Washington on top of the Morse Mountain covered with snow.

Very easy and beautiful views of the waterfall and mountains.
It’s nice and easy for a whole family hiking.

Beautiful

We are fortunate to have this in our backyard. Looping the trails is possible. They are well maintained. definitely on the easier side of moderate.

My favorite. Lots of great scrambles. Incredible views the whole way up.

Nice hike, river view and historic markers. We took our 4 year old grandson and had fun teaching him how to identify the different types of trees and leaves, moss mushrooms. Picnic tables and small grills available and a playground. Only complaint would be about the hikers that let their dogs off leash.

9/10. Excellent views. At some points very rocky and hard to keep your eyes off the ground. I lost the trail a few times over the costal rock scrambling portion but follow the rock stacks. At this time there is a 1.2 mile detour/addition due to some flooding

Enjoyed this hike. Steep going up but ladders & cable was anchored very well.

Great hike! Short, sweet, easy and great views. Tried to loop over to Maiden's Cliff and that was hard to find, but gorgeous hiking all through the park.

awesome place to walk and spend time with family , love the ocean too. awesome place to be

This was the first physical activity I had done in 6 months, upon walking..I was exhausted and felt like I was going to pass out, it is not an easy trail. But it was well worth it! Even after sunset and close to dark it was so stunning.
There are roots and small rocks scattered around, so it’s a good idea to bring sneakers with grippy soles or hiking boots. You definitely have to watch your step.

The only annoying part was the long dirt road to get to the trail head ! I was the only one hiking, and it was very peaceful. Although I started it later than most would recommend (4:15pm) in mid October I was back down at the car by 5:30pm. However, I did run most of the way down because I wanted to catch the sunset on my drive by Mount Blue State Park on the way out. Great hike overall. Stunning views at the top and very windy.

Really easy hike. Takes about 7 minutes to the top if you go the direct route. Kids, families and dogs enjoy the views from the big granite ledge on top. Fall is a great time of year to view foliage.

Great place ❤️

The view is spectacular. Fairly easy for the first mile or so and then becomes more challenging. Didn’t do the Woodsum Spur but would definitely like to another time.
