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.

Within ten minutes, you're in another world and yet so close to town. Fabulous views of the water and an Osprey preserve. Nice hiking trails. Take a couple of hours to enjpy this while in Freeport.

Not far from Freeport, the Park gives one the chance to have a quiet walk in the woods, to look out on the Maine islands and to see osprey. The trails are easy and well marked and there are stairs on the steeper parts. Great place to try out your new LL Bean gear.

We went here on the way to the LL Bean store. It was easy hiking for our young kids, and all of us loved the nature, you walk right next to the water and see all kinds of mushrooms, trees, and some wildlife.

This is a beautiful state park just outside of the shopping area. If you need to escape the madness of LL Bean, head over to the park for an easy 2.25 mile hike around the park. Pass through pine forest and beautiful, rocky Maine coastline. The park ranger was so so so nice, too. Totally worth the small entry fee.

The Osprey watch was spectacular and the park rangers were wonderful and knowledgeable about the birds and the area. Great experience. Also, it was handicap accessible which was a real treat for everyone in our group.
