See it on your own two feet
All the great hikes Maine is famous for in the summer are still available in the winter. The going is slower and the weather is colder but the winter woods are as beautiful as ever. Depending on weather conditions, even a short hike can be taxing and take a long time, so don’t plan on going the distances you’re used to. Vacationers staying in southern Maine will appreciate the ease of a hike up Bradbury Mountain in Freeport and Morse Mountain in Phippsburg. The hikes are quick and the views are gorgeous. More serious hikers will find it well worth their time to explore Burnt Mountain in Kingfield as well as parts of the Appalachian Trail that run from western Maine all the way up to Mount Katahdin.
