This 1-Mile Hike In Maine Will Lead You Straight To The Shores Of A Beautiful Lake

It’s a beautiful, warm Maine day. The sun is shining, there’s a breeze and things are feeling pretty perfect. Except for that fact that it feels like every hike, every walk, every outdoor endeavor has been tackled. What do you do? Start looking for the ones you’ve missed! There are walks, hikes and bike paths all over this state and we love exploring the ones that don’t make their way into the guide books. This is one of those!

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:
