Just off Rt1 behind Hannafords. Short trails. Great feeling of Maine. Private yet accessible. No dogs allowed. Anymore.

Really super way to spend an hour. The actual garden is the jackpot/destination of what can be an hour-long walk through the surrounding woods of this enchanting public-private partership. There's no admission fee (and no personnel on duty when we toured), but there are maps...More

Went for a hike around the perimeter trail - a little uneven in places because of tree roots but that's to be expected in the forest. Take mosquito spray along as they were pretty active. Had a lovely wander through the garden area taking pictures....More

Great place to go for a walk. Very near the center of Camden and Rockport. Easy walking on well groomed trails. While you are there check out the herb gardens.
