If you’re new to hiking or simply not up for anything too daunting, you may find some of New England’s hiking trails rather intimidating. Luckily, Maine happens to be full of easy trails the whole family will enjoy, some of which have some seriously stunning views. For the casual hiker who loves the great outdoors, we recommend checking out the Mackworth Island Trail. Not only is it suitable for all skill levels, but it also takes you all the way around a gorgeous island.

With its enchanting fairy houses, breathtaking views, pet cemetery, and official structures like the Governor Baxter School for The Deaf and Friends of School Portland (an independent Quaker preschool through eighth grade school), there’s certainly a lot going on on this little island. The fact that its main hiking trail happens to be a nice, easy, pleasant trek is just a beautiful bonus. Have you ever made your way to this one-of-a-kind island in Maine?
