Location: Wayne, Kennebec County
Description: The hiking trail rambles down through the woods to Wilson Pond, where there are several nice picnic spots and you can take a dip, if you want. Then the trail loops back up to the parking area. This is a great family hike.
Activities: Hiking, wildlife viewing, birding, photography
Favorite Season(s) to Visit: Summer and fall
Why It’s Special: This little gem is not too far away and is perfect for a morning or afternoon ramble with or without children. Some parts of the woods are dark and damp, and you feel like you’re out in the middle of nowhere. Wilson Pond is a quiet body of water, and there are places to sit and ponder.
Tips: Bring along a nice picnic and enjoy.
