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!

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

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.
