3 Beautiful Snowshoe Trails in Southern Maine

Snowshoeing is a relatively inexpensive way to enjoy Maine’s winter landscapes, while burning off some extra pounds from the holidays. Most of our state’s busy hiking trails see far less traffic in the winter months, so it’s time to explore. Just be sure to get out of there before the tourists arrive in July!

Whether you’re a seasoned snowshoe pro, or just a newbie who’s looking for a place to get started, Southern Maine houses some beautiful trails to check out!

Scarborough Marsh Trail (Old Orchard Beach)

Take a stroll (or a snowy trudge) through the largest protected marsh in the state of Maine. Just off Route 1, it won’t take long for you to find some peace and quiet. Check out the frosty tidal rivers and the native birds who didn’t get the memo to fly south.

 

North Meadow Trail (Falmouth)

Don’t let it’s location fool you! Falmouth’s North Meadow Trail is actually part of a 65 acre wildlife sanctuary. Be on the lookout for winter flocks of Canadian geese, with white snowshoe hares running through the woods and meadows.

 

Salt Hay Loop at Laudholm Farm (Wells)

A more stunning view this time of year can be found on Maine’s rocky coastline. Seeing where the snow meets the sea on a trail located inside the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve is a must! With over 7 miles to explore and plenty of shoreline to see, you should probably head there right now.
