Awesome heath preserve. This place is wonderful if you like geeking out on plants.

Very nice place to walk your dog off leash. The mowed grass trails are pleasant to walk on. Also, the trail near the river had nice summer wildflowers and were spectacular for pollinator viewing.

This is one of the best places to run your dog in Portland. The green and red trails are my favorite because of the gorgeous granite outcropping covered in moss, wildflowers in the spring and blueberries in the summer. The pond is also great for bird watching.

This was both of my Son's first mountain hike. We had a blast!

Nice easy hike to a scenic venue. Nice day w the kids!

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!

Fun trail from the parking area to the ice caves. Lush vegetation through the forest, soft trail floor, lots of roots, and huge boulders! The ice cave is very cool (no pun intended). Climb down the iron rungs to get into the cave. There is ice on the floor, so be careful! Be sure to take the side trip to the scenic lookout, and enjoy the beautiful views of 1st Debsconeag Lake. Fortunately the trails were very clean with no litter to be found.

This trail starts out pretty easy and is well marked and well worn but it gets rather gnarly towards the end, tricky roots, slick granite boulders, mid when it's wet but you are rewarded with a fire tower view at the end! I don't know how it is most of the time but I was surprised to see so many people on this trail.

Probably my favorite hike in Maine. It's challenging, but nowhere near impossible. The views and lake are extraordinary. We didn't see a single hiker on the trail over Labor Day weekend 2016. Love u, Maine.

Decent walking trails behind Inland hospital. I did the whole network I think twice in the 4 hours I was stuck at the hospital (with my dog). Intertwines with another network of trails not shown on the map but easy to navigate yourself around. Definitely recommend if waiting for a patient but not sure I'd go out of my to come back.

Should be rated as easy. There are some cool bridges here and I like the history, but you never fully lose the sound of traffic. The trails are not marked so venturing from the main trails isn't recommended.

I love the Viles Aborteum. I come here to walk all the time with my dog and even have a garden planted. I recommend this place to anyone (any age!) looking for easy walking trails surrounded by nature, art sculptures and good people. The trails are clearly marked and there are signs everywhere, but I also think they offer maps at the visitor's center at the parking lot. if you are a plant enthusiast like me, you will enjoy it here.

It's a cute 2 mile walk along a paved path parallel to the railroad tracks that leads to Hollowell.

Cycled from Biddeford down the Eastern Trail to the end of Scarborough and found my way to the this trail. Had to use my phones GPS because it was the first time cycling, and was a lot of road riding, got a little sketchy/confusing by MillCreekPark, but finally made it to Bug Light Park!

Love this trail! The view from the top of the fire tower is beautiful!

Good little hike. Get there in the morning to avoid all of the ppl.
