Everytime we go to Maine, we seem to hike this park with our son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren. Always a beautiful experience combining the woodlands and the ocean. this time we had the good fortune to see an osprey nest close up via telescope. Can't get enough of this park.

I'm not sure why anyone would feel ripped off to pay $4.50 to walk among towering trees, sit on a rocky ledge overlooking islands and wildlife, and view an osprey nest from 25 yards away. The views were great, the trail well cleared and not too steep at any point, with good explanations of the wildlife and views at many... More

If you are looking for some quite time or to get away from the shopping in Freeport, Wolfe's Neck State Park is just the thing. The trails have access to the beautiful rugged coastline of Maine. Often an osprey nest can be viewed from the trail. Also nice views of Freeport harbor from the "inside" portion of the park.

It's a perfectly nice little state park with nice but unremarkable hikes with some OK views of the water, but really nothing special. It's not worth the entry fee ($4.50 per person). There are better ways to spend your time in this beautiful part of the country. We spent about 90 minutes here and about 90 minutes in Portland and... More

Nice trails along the coast, beautiful colors in the scenery and so tranquil! Sit on the rocks overlooking Osprey Island, watch the nest and nothing else in the world matters!

Very nice area that my wife & I wanted to see. We stopped at a contact station with a park employee & didn't know what to expect... We informed him that we just wanted to drive through to see what there was to offer. $4.50 per person later we drove through the 1/2 mile loop & back out again. It... More

A wonderful state park, with great trails of varying lengths, leading through the woods and along the coast, including a handicap accessible trail. One of our favorites leads along the coast with a view of a small island that contains an osprey nest. Their is also a nice picnic area and rest rooms available here. All of this only a... More

One of my favorite natural spaces in the midcoast area. There are beautiful, easy, well maintained trails that meander by the water, including spaces to climb down onto the rocks and rocky 'beach' below. There is a great variety of views in the trails, facilities on site and a great place to hike, paint, journal, walk your dog or just... More

The bad news is that it's pretty small and most of the trails are flat. If you are a serious hiker looking for advanced hiking, steepness & difficulty then this isnt your place. There are many picnic tables and this would be a great spot for that if you planned ahead. Park entrance has a fee of $4.50 a person... More

We stayed three nights in Portland and decided to drive up to Freeport. I guess a lot of people go to Freeport for the outlet stores or for LL Bean. We did walk around a little bit but decided to continue on to Wolfe's Neck Woods State Park. I just used the tourism map and ended up missing the Wolfe... More
