I ate dinner on a cliff as the tide was coming in. Beautiful area with dense trees, and views of Freeport Harbor along with wildlife.

Amazing hike on a Nature Conservancy property. The hike inlcuded woods, a salt marsh, and spectacularly secluded beach. I met an Ornithologist and we identified and counted migratory birds. He taught me a lot about gulls and seals too. What a fantastic experience! I recommend this hidden gem for all.

I really liked this hike a lot because we met a local lobster fisherman, toured old Fort Popham, walked the beach, went swimming in the ocean, ate a good lunch, and took a ferry to Seguin Island.

This was a fun hike overlooking the forest; a canopy of colorful leaves could be seen in all directions. If you look very closely with binoculars then downtown Portland and a small glimpse of the ocean is possible.

Vraiment agréable, avec le défi de monter aux parois à l'aide des barres métalliques. Un incontournable de Acadia parc.

The climb is always worth it.. beautiful views once we reached the top. Definitely didn't wear the right shoes for snow/ice. Not a hard hike per say but very slippery in areas. Fun to see all the tracks in the snow on the way up. Wish we would've started the trail earlier to enjoy the view up top longer. Incredible. A few in our group didn't make it all the way due to the slick conditions (child in a backpack child carrier... better safe than sorry). Definitely want to come back in the summer/fall!

A fourth trailhead has been added. This primary trailhead, with parking for 8 cars, is located at the junction of Methodist Road and Route 302 in Westbrook. Maps for this and all the land trust’s conserved lands are available at www.prlt.org. Well done Westbrook and PRLT!

Rachelle Curran Apse, Land Trust Executive Director said, “Mill Brook Preserve trails offer spectacular views of the largest migratory alewife run from Casco Bay each spring. The expansion of Mill Brook Preserve means more people will be able to experience the diversity of wildlife attracted to the fish migration, like great blue herons, osprey, bald eagles, and mink.”

Nice short hike with great views at the top! My only complaint is that it is too short for my liking - it took me longer to drive there than it did for me to hike it! Definitely planning on some return visits though for some astrophotography and sunrise pics. Great hike for kids!

Beautiful sunset, but get there early

nice hike

really enjoyed this one

what a hike that will work your legs and your will.
