Best Hiking In Maine

June 17, 2022

Does Maine have a lot of great winter hiking?

Absolutely! Many choose to forgo the snow covered routes and enjoy brisk walks by the oceanside. These trails are easy to do, which is nice when the ground is hard, and it’s a great way of getting out of the house without having to be covered in snow gear. The best place to truly embrace winter hiking would have to be Camden Hills State Park, known throughout the state for their 50 miles of trails that are a blast to explore in the snowiest seasons.

Can you hike Acadia National Park in Maine in the winter?

Absolutely! Acadia National Park is absolutely stunning in the winter. Not usually a big tourist destination in the colder months, you can enjoy 45 miles of groomed trails to hike during even the snowiest and coldest of Maine’s winter months. Just pack some crampons for the icy parts and you’re ready to go!
