Peaks-Kenny State Park, Dover-Foxcroft

QUICK TRAIL FACTS

  • Preserve Size: 832 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~6 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy to moderate
  • Sights: Sebec Lake

You can do a lot of different walks at the state park. The two-mile, one-way Browns Point Trail takes you to a little secluded flattish rock on the lake’s edge where you can swim away from the beach crowd. This trail passes through old forest and by a marsh. While it is well blazed, it doesn’t seem particularly well traveled.

The Birch Mountain loop is a 2.6-mile loop that takes you to the 1,090-foot summit of a little mountain (there are no views!). You ascend about 350 feet in the climb. There is a smaller loop trail nestled into the Birch Mountain loop. Note the interesting sculpture of a picnic table emerging from a cairn about halfway through the hike (and I think at the summit), one of several picnic table sculptures in the park!

My favorite trail in the park is the Cove Trail, a roughly half-mile loop that takes you along beautiful lake frontage, and by some very well situated picnic tables.

Directions: From Dover-Foxcroft, follow Route 153, or Greenley’s Landing Road, for 4.5 miles. Turn left onto State Park Road to enter the park.
