Location: York, York County
Description: The former ski area and surrounding woodlands has a large network of well-marked trails on 10,000 acres.
Activity: Hiking, trail running
Favorite Seasons to Visit: Year-round
Why It’s Special: This large swath of intact coastal forest has a jaw-dropping view of the Gulf of Maine and the White Mountains from the summit, plus miles and miles of trails to explore. There are diverse habitats to see because, here, the ranges of northern and southern species overlap. It’s worth a visit just to spot a chestnut oak.
Tips: Print out a map before you go. Start out at the platform next to the former ski lodge at the summit. Explanatory plaques will orient you to what you are seeing in the 360-degree view. The summit lodge has environmental education displays staffed by volunteers; open on weekends in the warmer months.
