  • Pettengill Farm is a nineteenth century salt-water farm owned by Freeport Historical Society. It includes a saltbox house (ca. 1800) on 140 acres of fields, woods, apple orchards and salt marsh. The trail was a bit rough when I walked here.
  • Mast Landing Audubon Sanctuary — More than three miles of trails wind along this 140-acre preserve, mostly flat. Sometimes the trails are overgrown. No dogs allowed.
  • Wolfe’s Neck Woods State Park — 200 beautiful acres, several miles of easy trails. Dogs allowed on leash.
  • Wolfe’s Neck Farm Trails — Wolfe’s Neck Farm has more than 3 miles of hiking trails open to the public year-round. A bit hard to find the path sometimes. Dogs allowed, I think.
  • Calderwood Trail — A very short walk. Dogs allowed.
  • East Freeport Trails — A long, flat walk in the woods, with a side trip to a beaver pond. Dogs allowed except on part of the Kelsey Brook Trail that passes farm.
  • South Freeport Trails — Good walking here on substantial tracts. Mostly flat. Dogs allowed.
  • Cousins River Trail A short, 1.2-mile or so walk, there and back, to an overlook of the river. Dogs allowed.
  • Powell Point — A 1.6-mile, there-and-back trail that leads you to a bench overlooking a spectacular view of Casco Bay, and a side trail to a salt marsh. A short incline. Dogs allowed.
  • Hedgehog Mountain and Freeport Recreational Trails — Over five miles of trails leads to Freeport’s highest point — which is fairly anti-climactic. Dogs allowed.
  • Florida Lake — Walk around a large, shallow lake on this 167-acre property. Flat and easy. Dogs allowed.
  • Quarry Woods — This 35-acre town-owned preserve has 1.5 miles of wooded trails, probably not the smoothest walking. Dogs allowed.
  • Arnold Family Forest — This property includes a 3.-mile trail to the banks of a private cove. There might be more trails here, but they weren’t well marked when I visited. Dogs allowed.
  • Frost Gully Woods — An easy walk, under a mile, that takes you to an enchanting brook. Dogs allowed.
  • Rachel’s Cove — A very short walk, dogs allowed. Close to Wolfe’s Neck State Park. Dogs allowed.
