Maine’s Bowl Trail Leads To A Magnificent Hidden Oasis

One could argue that all of Maine is a hidden oasis. If they did, they’d certainly be correct. Between the sea and the forest and all the things there are to enjoy between the two, there’s never a lack of beauty here. While much of it can be found in our own backyards, we love a little adventure. Especially when that adventure truly is little. This hike is shorter than you’d expect and it leads to one of the most refreshing secret spots in the state.

The Bowl Trail can be accessed year-round, but not surprisingly those who have done it say it’s best in the spring, summer and fall unless you’re comfortable with winter hiking. You can learn more about it on And don’t forget to bring the pups! Just make sure they’re on a leash at all times.

While you’re in the area, we’ve got another great idea for some outdoor fun. This hike in Maine will give you an unforgettable experience and it leads to another beautiful body of water.
