10 Incredible Hikes Under 5 Miles Everyone In Maine Should Take

Those first few nice days in Maine always have me imaging what I’ll do when summer is finally here. I know I’ll be visiting some of the beaches we mentioned a few days ago, but I’m really devoting the next few months to exploring on foot. I hope to do my fair share of hiking, but I’m not trying to summit Katahdin. If, like me, you prefer to hit the trails without toting a backpack full of supplies, check out these hikes that are under five miles. They’ll let you enjoy Mother Nature and still have you home in time for a sunset happy hour on the porch.
