The Secret Garden Hike In Maine Will Make You Feel Like You’re In A Fairytale
Maine has no shortage of ways to enjoy the outdoors. Whether you’re looking for something challenging to build up a sweat (head to Katahdin!) or something much more leisurely, allowing you to enjoy a day outside there’s something for just about everyone looking for a dose of nature. This beautiful garden walk in Maine is one of our favorite ways to get outside without working up a sweat. The best part? It’s been built to attract the most beautiful butterflies in the state – and they come by the hundreds every year!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life.

Another wonderful and easy way to explore the outdoors is on one of Maine’s educational boardwalk trails. Try this one in Wells for a full day outside.
Michelle has lived in many places, but counts Maine as one of the best. In addition to the smell of ocean water in the air on rainy days in Portland, she loves puppies, photography, funny people, the Maine Red Claws, traveling, fresh tomatoes, Cambodia and filling out forms.
