More Info & Ideas Coming Soon!

Maine is jam-packed with fun outings for adventurous families. Here we've compiled some of our favorites from outing we've done with our kids. We are constantly learning about new places to bring the family, and we want to hear about your grand adventures, too. Come on by the store and tell us your stories, or let us know about your favorite places on our Facebook page.

Great for all ages. For a short excursion, take a picnic to the rocks along the Casco Bay trail. Then explore the tide pools and watch the ospreys in their nest. With more time, walk the other easy trails through the forest to the cliffs above the Harraseeket River. WNSP is also great for beginner-friendly snowshoeing in the winter.

Wolfe's Neck State Park - Mini Adventure

We've had excellent trips to both the Flagstaff Lake Hut and the Grand Falls Hut. We prefer to go during caretaker season when prices are lower and the huts are far less crowded. One hint: Aim for a June trip on the last weekend before full-service season. You'll get great weather along with a nearly-empty hut. The kids love having the run of the place, and sleeping in bunk beds is always exciting. The Flagstaff Lake Hut is accessed by a flat 1.8-mile trail and it features a nice swimming area and good paddling. One time we even paddled a couple miles and arrived at the hut by canoe. The Grand Falls hut is a slightly-longer hike in (2+ miles). From the hut you can hike to Grand Falls, which is an exciting waterfall with great places to play in the river.

If you and your kids are feeling comfortable on the water and ready for a bigger trip, try camping on Students Island. It's a totally manageable 15-minute canoe trip to the island. Once there you'll feel like you've traveled deep into the wilderness. There's lots of fun to be had right there on the island, or you could take short trips back to shore to play on the sandy beach.

Black Point walk

This trip is especially good in the winter. The wonderful people at Maine Forest Yurts will take most of your stuff into the yurt by snowmobile, so you can just focus on moving your crew along the 1 mile path on foot/snowshoe/ski. None of our kids had skied before, so we snowshoed in with the youngest in a backpack. We brought along skis and were amazed at how much everyone enjoyed learning to ski right there beside the yurt. The inside was perfectly comfortable for the six of us, with a warm fire and clean (but very cold) outhouse just outside the door of the yurt. Book early because the yurts fill up fast.

Mt. Blue State Park - Big Adventure

There are several great half-day paddling excursions in the greater Portland area. Try a sunrise paddle for extra wow-factor.

Royal River - You can access the river from several points. We like to put in next to the Yarmouth Historical Society, paddle up river against a mild current, then paddle back to the same launch. It's an easy-to-reach spot that feels much more remote than it actually is.

Runaround Pond - This easy-access pond in Durham is a great spot for a quick paddle. We've seen turtles, snakes, and beavers there. 

Androscoggin River - We like to put in at Durham River Park and take out at the Lisbon Falls boat launch. This trip requires you to spot a car. It's a bit more complicated, but it's an easy paddle with some small ripples, depending on water level. Thrilling for the kids.

Harraseeket River - Another point-to-point trip we like is to put in at Mast Landing just after high tide, then ride the outgoing tide out to Porter's Landing. Mast Landing is only accessible near high tide.
