the walk through the woods with the water in sight is peaceful and calming. it feels like a walk in the wild woods. i like the fact that there are no amenities and I found the outhouses decent enough. it feels rugged and lovely. i also like going to to the farm nearby with the belted cows and the place...

Have loved this place for 45 years! Great place for dog walkers as well. See rugged coast from old growth forest, osprey nests, and cozy nooks to view Casco Bay...feels like 100 miles from civilization, yet only 4 miles from LL Bean.

Only 10 minutes or so outside the shopping frenzy that we call Freeport, wow a great park. No hills to speak of and certainly not for serious hikers looking for a challenge but for a great walk, fantastic views of Casco Bay (no beach, mind you), but rock outcroppings suitable for a snack or even a picnic ... a real...

Lovely walking paths through the woods, and beautiful views on the water. Loved the little island with osprey nests. A very relaxing afternoon.

We started on the Casco Bay path. The views are amazing! We also found a bit of sea glass on the beach which was a bonus. We set out for a longer hike on the Harraseeket Trail. The path was beautifully maintained and easy to follow. Parking was a breeze, too, and it looked like there were bathrooms nearby. This... More

Easy trails through the wood. Vistas of the bay. We saw a pair of bald eagles up close in a flash. Also osprey and other water birds. Very quiet and peaceful. a big contrast to the shopping area.

I think a lot of travelers to Freeport never realize how close they actually are to the ocean. This Maine State Park has easy walking trails along Casco Bay. Beautiful coastline, osprey nests, as much or as little walking as you wish to do. Just a few minutes from the hustle and bustle of shopping in town.

My wife and I took a morning walk on the Coastal Trail. The trail is easy and you get some great views of the Maine Coastline and rocks. It is a nice place to see an Osprey nest although we did not see any.

Wolfe's Neck Woods and State Park is a nice location for gentle walking trails along the ocean. $4.50 per person entry fee. There were public restrooms and picnic areas.

Nice little park with views of waterfront. Osprey young leaving nest with parents, made my day. Walks through the woods and tidal flats make interesting outing.
