This Quaint Little Trail Is The Shortest And Sweetest Hike In Maine

Outdoor lovers flock to Maine for its hearty trails and beautiful views. But, you don’t need to be prepared to hike the summit of Katahdin to enjoy all the state has to offer. In fact, we’ve slightly altered the old photography adage, “the best camera is the one you have with you.” We like to say, “the best Maine hiking trail is the one you actually choose to do!” So, if you love the outdoors, but prefer something short and sweet try this short hike in Maine. It’s beautiful, fun and feels oh-so-very Maine!

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: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

To access the footbridge, head to Foot Bridge Beach where there’s a parking lot. In the summer you’ll need to pay a fee, but in the winter you should be able to access it for free.
