Another great hike in the Harpswell area. All the trails here have great views and the hikes will help you sweat if you take them at a good pace. Take the kids and the dogs (leash) and enjoy the area.

Located right off Route 24, there is a dirt parking area and trails on both sides of the highway. It's just a short walk through the woods to Long Cove on one side and Gun Point Cove on the other.
