We were in Portland recently on a Canadian cruise, and rented a car to do some sightseeing. Had seen some blurbs about this park and decided to check it out. Small fee for entrance, on the honor system. Nice parking lot. Well marked hiking trails which seemed well maintained. It was about a 10 minute walk to the waters edge,... More

Love taking walks here...several trails, but my favorite is the one that loops around with the ocean on your right (nay be shaped like a wolf's neck)...you are up high and at various points you can actually see osprey in their nests and flying as well. Beautiful woodsy areas with streams and flora...photo ops of the ocean, the rocky shore,... More

This is a gorgeous, family friendly little park right down the road from Freeport. Most of the trails are only a mile or two long and very easy making this a good place to get outdoors with everyone!

This is my favorite place! So pretty! We take the kids here often. It is great all four seasons and is really truly beautiful. We do the Casco Bay trail, which is only about a mile. There are other trails though and the place is pet friendly!

We recently hiked a portion of the park and loved the ease of the trails, the beautiful scenery, and the cleanliness. You can get right up to the water, and there is a little stand that shows the names of the nearby islands. We were there for a family reunion years ago and it was a great spot for that.

If you are staying in or near Freeport and need are safe place to get some fresh air and relax this place will fit the bill. Located on and near the water and with paths to walk on with others or a leashed dog, it is a good little getaway. So close to Freeport but seems so far away because... More

For the not too ambitious hiker this is a great place for a family walk to the shore through a beautiful forest. Quintessential Maine coastline. Stop at the wolves neck farm too!

A server at a restaurant in Portland gave us the suggestion of this park as a place to hike or cross country ski. We checked it out, and were not disappointed. It's not a huge park, but we loved the trails (about 5 miles of them). It was not crowded, and views were wonderful. Some trails come out by the... More
