If you’re an early riser, what could be more wonderful than a walk along
a beautiful path along the edge of the ocean? – It’s great any other time of the

You’ll find lots of wonderful walking trails along Mt. Agamenticus, and beauty every step of the way.
An amazing way to see the ocean!

You can drive up, or partway up, if that suits you more, though it’s not steep, just bumpy.

The region is known for its abundance of vernal pools, rich biodiversity, and unique trail system and is home to many of Maine’s rare plants and animals.

State, local and non-profit landowners are working together to protect Mount A’s water, wildlife, and land.

Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge

Did you think your getaway could turn into an environmental awakening? Rachel Carson became known as the first environmentalist after her book, “Silent Spring” was published.

These are a few sites to visit near here. In Kittery, a very beautiful spot, which includes a secluded beach, and just north of us, in Wells.

Read or download the brochure of their walking paths here.

Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge was established to protect valuable salt marshes and estuaries for migratory birds.

The proximity of the refuge to the coast and its location between the eastern deciduous forest and the boreal forest creates a composition of plants and animals not found elsewhere in Maine.York, Maine walking trails
