If you are in the area be sure and make a stop here. A short walk with lots of rocks to climb on and get closer to the ocean. The geology of the rocks is worth seeing. Saw a harbor seal in the bay popping...More

This is a sight that you have to experience by being there. You cannot capture the visual images or sounds of the blue water waves crashing over the rocky terrain in a review. Needless to say, we could have sat on the rocks for hours...More

The Giant Steps Trail was one of the highlights of our trip to Maine. This is a relatively short trail with parking at the Church on one end and along the road on the other end. The entire trail is located along the rocky coast...More

We brought our kids here and they enjoyed the stop! We parked at the Episcopal Church on Washington Street, which had about 4 spots (we snagged the last one). From there it's a short walk to the end of the street, then a turn onto...More

Easy access to a spectacular view of the open ocean and a walk along jagged rocks thrust out of the earth in vertical sheets. View beautiful summer cottages carefully sited into the surrounding flora and fauna.

this is a fun short walk by (or along) rock cliffs. Hear the waves crashing as you walk by uplifted rocks. My 3 young kids had fun climbing along the rocks. Not sure that we actually found the "stairs"?? Watch for poison ivy, but didn't...More
