Manor Trail in red; Ted Wells Memorial Trail in blue

This is a lovely, very short (.4-mile there and back) to a boardwalk, beautiful deck and overlook of the protected salt marsh. The trail begins at Oceanwood camp, which has a big parking lot you can park in. The camp also has trails that connect to the Ted Wells Memorial Trail (marked in green on my map). The camp requests that you notify it if you are using the trail. The trail head and kiosk are behind the camp’s main building and next to the swimming pool. For more information, go here.

Directions: From downtown Saco, go north on US Route 1 and then right onto ME Route 5 (Ocean Park Road). Pass through the “Halfway Intersection” in Old Orchard Beach and continue on Temple Avenue toward Ocean Park. Cross the railroad tracks and turn right on Royal Street. Drive to the end where you’ll find parking in front of the Oceanwood Camp office. Walk to the right of camp’s main building and look for the swimming pool in back. The trail head kiosk is to the left of the pool at the edge of the woods. The camp requests that you notify them you are using the trail system.
