5 BEST Southern Maine Hiking Trails

Mount Agamenticus

Mount Agamenticus is a scenic gem, a panoramic pinnacle overlooking the Atlantic, and very accommodating for youngsters and even elders, especially if you consider driving up to the summit for the view of Cape Neddick and the Atlantic all the way to the Boston skyline. 

Bradbury Mountain

Bradbury Mountain State Park is a hiker’s favorite in the Pownal – Freeport Maine area. The short hike to the summit is a good choice to escape the summer crowds or to get off the couch in the winter. 

Saco Heath Preserve

Located just a hop, skip, and jump from Portland, the Saco Heath Preserve is considered by some to be one of Southern Maine’s hidden gems. 

Wolfe’s Neck Woods State Park

Just five minutes from the center of Freeport and has a little bit of everything where nature is considered. The park includes forests, rocky beach shorelines, and a salt march estuary. 

Fort McClary State Historic Site

It’s not every day that you can take a hike inside a historic site. But that’s exactly what visitors will find here at a fort that’s more than 250 years old and looks out over the Piscataqua River.
