Beautiful Places In Maine

What are the most beautiful hikes I can take in Maine?

  • South Bubble Hike

In addition to the beautiful places listed above, Maine is full of scenic hikes. One of our favorite beautiful hiking spots in Maine is the South Bubble hike. It's in the Bubble Mountains, one of the more accessible endeavors in Acadia National Park. Once you've reached the top you'll see the famous perched rock, left by glacial activity centuries ago. It's gorgeous.

Are there many waterfalls in Maine?

Maine has some truly spectacular waterfalls that will truly take your breath away. One of our favorites is Screw Auger Falls, which we also included in the above list of beautiful places in Maine. Sourced by the Bear River, these falls are comprised of two hearty drops. The first is a 30-foot drop over a granite ledge into the gorge below. The second is just below the first and features another 30-foot drop. When you picture a rushing, powerful waterfall — this is probably what you’re picturing.

Does Maine have any other natural wonders?

In addition to stunning waterfalls and its very own Grand Canyon, Maine is home to lots of natural wonders. Acadia National Park is, of course, the most well-known. For a more bizarre natural wonder, check out the “reversing falls” in West Pembroke, where the changing tide creates a tidal flow that alternately fills and drains both Whiting Bay and Dennys Bay, causing the appearance of “falls.” It’s one of the more puzzling natural wonders in Maine, to be sure.
