There’s A Hike In Maine That Leads You Straight To An Abandoned B-52 Crash

There are a number of hikes in Maine leading straight to the most beautiful places in the state. From views high above the treetops to those that go for miles across the Atlantic Ocean. While we love these hikes and recommend a ton of them, we also love the ones that lead to history. You won’t find quintessential vistas or a cool, rickety lobster shack. Instead, you’ll find a B-52 crash site in Maine that lies at the end of an easy hike. With the ability to pay homage to those who worked on behalf of America’s freedom, we think you’ll find that this is a trip worth taking.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
