  • What a lovely park! Paths are well marked, there's a nice map available at the park entrance. Some of the paths had nice stone sections or bridges over small streams. Very pretty. The coastal trail leads to a gravel beach that had thousands of periwinkle shells. My toddler and I had a great time.
  • One of my favorite places. The trails are gorgeous. Beautiful ocean views and so much fun to watch the osprey.
  • This state park has nice picnicking areas as well as hiking trails. There is good wildlife viewing opportunities along the estuary as well.
  • Great place for a walk in the woods with nice views of Casco bay and access to the rocky shore. Well-maintained, and good choices of paths if you want a long or short walk.
  • Beautiful place to spend the day. Great trails and little beaches littered all over.
