Before heading to the 75th annual Eastern Maine Sportsmen’s Show in Orono for a weekend of meeting readers and fellow outdoor enthusiasts (and homemade ice cream from Stone Fox Farm Creamery), I visited a preserve that I’d never been to, though I’ve driven by it plenty of times while on my way to other hiking trails. This preserve, perhaps overshadowed by a large nearby park, offers a beautiful walk through an old forest to the ocean. The three trails of the preserve are marked by different color paint – yellow, blue and red. The hike through the woods, along the shore and back was about 3 miles. Try to guess what preserve I visited by viewing the photo gallery below. Winner gets an internet high five. And stay tuned for tomorrow’s “1-minute hike” video and writeup about the hike, which I’ll post tomorrow.
P.S. Thanks to all the people who stopped by the BDN booth at the show! I had some great talks with fellow hikers. Thanks for all the suggestions and support.
