This 2.8-Mile Forested Hike In Maine Is A Sure Way To Remember Why This Is The Way Life Should Be

Some might argue that winter is a bit too treacherous, but we’d like to remind those people that the entire point of Maine is to be slightly uncomfortable and unnecessarily cold. While we’re mostly kidding about this, we do think that a nice hike in the woods is a great idea any time of year and this one in Castine is a great option for those who can do it.

Witherle Woods is open year-round, but be sure to take extra precautions when the weather is cold and icy. You can learn more about Witherle Woods by visiting the Maine Coast Heritage Trust website.
