MAINE BEACHES OUTDOOR RECREATION

Once you have had a chance to spend some time on our spectacular beaches, we invite you to take advantage of the ample recreational treasures found here. From hikes through tidal marshes to summiting Mt. Agamenticus. For those who love to tee up, there are fairways, berms, rough, and greens to suit every kind of golfer.

These days, trails aren’t just for the woods you know. Everywhere you turn you can find a way to get off the beaten path and into nature. Choose from neatly paved, region-wide routes like the Eastern Trail, which begins in Kittery and hugs the coast northbound through Maine. If you happen to be spending time in Sanford, try the scenic trails along the Mousam River or the six-mile Sanford-Springvale Rail Trail.

At 692 feet, Mount Agamenticus isn’t tall, but its nearly 30,000 acres are a spectacular venue for recreation with miles of hiking and biking trails. Take in the views southeast to the ocean or northwest to the Presidential Range and Mount Washington.

Bird watching is far and away the thing to do in the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge in Wells, where 50 miles of coastline habitat create a composition of plants and animals not found anywhere else. Remember to have a camera handy for the chance to capture spectacular nature photography, or your binoculars if you love spotting and tracking birds. Our mix of lowland forests and coastal estuaries along the Atlantic Flyway make an ideal location for spotting migrating waterfowl.

Load up your own bike or rent from one of our numerous outfitters, who have everything you need, from road and mountain bikes to racks and gear. Experienced riders will not want to miss the singletrack rides at Mount Aggie (Agamenticus) or Parsonfield in the northwest corner of York County, with rolling foothills carpeted in tall trees and more than 25 miles of memorable (and challenging) rides. Consider joining a guided tour or customized excursion, or hiring a private guide who knows all the best trails.

Regular visitors to the region know to bring their clubs along. With more than a dozen beautiful and historic courses there is a good reason, too!
