Hiking in Maine

Deciding which path to take when hiking in Maine feels like a choose-your-own-adventure story. There’s a certain magic that happens here when you take your first step. Maine hiking options are limitless and the path you choose will always be the right one.

  • Perhaps your path is a day hike, where you’ll be rejuvenated by the sounds of a natural waterfall, or the sight of whales or bald eagles, and return to a cozy room at one of Maine’s many types of lodging.
  • More adventurous spirits will crave a backpacking trip to the mountains, where you’ll reconnect with wildlife and nature, and sleep under a blanket of stars.
  • And if you want to create fun memories that your kids will never forget, there are hiking options for kids of all ages and abilities.
  • There is truly a hike for everyone in Maine, and that’s why we’ve gathered insider articles and videos and an interactive map to help you begin your journey. But that’s only the start. You’ll discover much more once you’re here, because every path through Maine is unique, exciting and yours to explore.
