The 2.5-Mile Rines Forest Trail In Maine Takes You Through A Beautiful Wooded Landscape

While it’s definitely still summer in Maine, we’re getting ready to plan some of our favorite fall hikes. Many of the routes in Maine can be done any time of year (as long as you love snow!) but some are just a little more special this time of year. Maybe it’s the fact that we know deep green forests will soon give way to multicolored foliage. Or maybe it’s just that any hike at any time of year is great here. Either way, this route through the forest is a great one!

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/

The Rines Forest can be accessed without a mandatory fee and pets are permitted on leash. You can learn more about it and see a map here. You can also learn more about the Chebeague and Cumberland Land Trust on Facebook.
