This Easy 1-Mile Loop Hike In Maine Wanders Through Forest And Fields All Along The Coast

Visitors and residents of Maine alike know about places like Acadia National Park and some of the more famous state parks. In fact, aside from lobster rolls and lighthouses, Maine might be best known for its access to beautiful natural landscapes. That’s why so many of these more well-known spots tend to be crowded and busy. To get off-the-beaten-path, consider visiting some of the under-the-radar natural areas like this spot in Boothbay Harbor. This loop hike in Maine is short but no less beautiful than any other of the more famous places.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Oak Point Farm is best visited between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on weekdays. This is when the public restrooms in the farmhouse are open and staff is available to answer questions.
