During the summer, pick wild blueberries and snack your way to the top of the trail! If you’re here for our glorious fall, spend an afternoon apple picking at an orchard. Rent bikes and leaf peep on two wheels in the brisk fall air, or take the bikes by ferry to an island and peddle the parameter. Take in ocean views from the snow bowl as you navigate the trails of our local ski mountain, which is also home to the Annual Toboggan Championships.
Mount Battie (You can also drive up for a fee)
This is a quick, steep hike with beautiful views. The trail head is on Megunticook Street. It looks like you’re driving into someone’s driveway and the parking lot is behind that.
Bald Mountain Trail
This is a great medium-length hike with more great views. (You can make it longer by adding other trails to it). The trail head is off of Barnestown Road on the right, just past the Snow Bowl.
Maiden Cliff’s Trail Head
The trail head is off by 52, right across from Megunticook Lake. – This trail head leads to many different trails, some short and some longer, all with great views.

Great walk (or drive) around the Beauchamp Point. There are great views of Rockport Harbor, places to go swimming in the ocean, and a beautiful outdoor Children’s Chapel to sit and read. Running the loop is one of our guest’s favorite runs.
Jul 21, 2012. The Maine Lobster Ride & Roll offers Maine’s most scenic bike rides along winding country lanes and the breathtaking rockbound coast of Midcoast Maine. The ride features four distances, from a family-friendly 16 miles to a route that has been rated by Outdoor Magazine as one of the top centuries in the country. All four routes pass by lakes, lighthouses and lobster boats. All have maps, support services and rest stops with food and water. The queen of the Maine Lobster Ride will greet returning riders with bells ringing! They then will enjoy a fresh Maine lobster roll lunch, with vegetarian and tuna options available. Live footage of the Tour de France will play on a big screen during lunch. Maine’s own world-famous Lobster Bike will be there, too. Lobster Riders get collectible Lobster Ride socks! The ride benefits the Bicycle Coalition’s education and advocacy work for better bicycling in Maine. Meet at Oceanside High School (formerly Rockland High School) on 400 Broadway aka Rte 1A.
