Wolfe’s Neck State Park, Maine

Wolfe’s Neck State Park contains a small network of trails along the Casco Bay and is home to ospreys, bald eagles, and other birds. The coastline is typical of this part of Maine – a mix of basalt and sedimentary – that was draped with seaweed at low tide. Although the park has up to five miles of trails, I mostly stuck to the shore once I got there, climbing over the rocks and exploring tide pools and such. It was less a hike than an exploration of the coast.
