Reid State Park, Georgetown

  • Trail Mileage: +5 miles of walking, on beaches and in the woods behind
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: woods, marshes, long, white beaches

Reid State Park is very well known and probably in every Maine guidebook, so it arguably doesn’t need more attention. But my goal is to post as many walks as I can find, whether they are famous or only known by a few locals. This park is gorgeous, hence its popularity, with miles of trails along woods, marshes and long, white beaches (Mile Beach and a Half Mile Beach). And it has great boulders for clambering on and many picnic tables for eating on. Pets aren’t allowed on the beach between April 1 and September 30.

Directions: To get there, travel 13 miles down Route 127 from the junction with Route 1 in Woolwich. Then take a right on Seguinland Road in Georgetown.
