Great Trails and Views of Wildlife

The ranger was very helpful and talked to us about the trail options. We were able to observe an Osprey nest.

A great place to visit for a hike, bird watching, kayaking/canoeing. Easy to get too but still untouched by developments.

Wolfe's neck state park is a good place to take a walk in the woods on small paths. You can walk along the sea, with a nice view. You can sit and listen to birds sing and enjoy some peace

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
