Great trails to hike with children with variety of sights (old stone fireplaces, foundations of structures from years ago, berries to pick and eat!, brooks and ponds to skim rocks, and gigantic boulders to climb)to keep kids entertained. Lets not forget that this is the largest bird sanctuary in Maine. Will be a great area to snowshoe with kids when the time is right. Beautiful views, variety of animals including deer and fisher cats.

You can hike these trails year round. No pets, wheeled vehicles of ANY kind and no guns. Site is easy for most anyone but can get sloppy in spots. I hike it very often as it is closest to my home and never tire of its beauty. I have seen deer tracks, a weasel, turkey and a quail just to name some of what you might see.
