This Easy Fall Hike In Maine Is Under 2 Miles And You’ll Love Every Step You Take

This easy fall hike in Maine is a great way to do that. It’s under about one mile and provides views of forest and river.

You can find the Rachel Carson Trail by heading to Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge in Wells.
Assuming you’re coming from I-95, turn off on exit 19. From here you’ll turn left on to Route 9 going about 1.5 miles to Route 1. Here, head north for nearly 2 miles before turning right on Port Road. The refuge will be on the right in about a half mile. Click here for a map and directions. You can learn more about the refuge here.
