The Barred Owl Trail at the Highland Farm Preserve in York, Maine is an easy 0.4-mile out-and-back trail that leads to an old cemetery from the 1800s along with an obstructed, likely seasonal, vista labelled "overlook" on the main park map.

This trail begins about 100-feet from the end of the Field Trail and heads north along a fairly skinny path. The trail eventually curves around with a view of a field and a private residence in the distance. Shortly after that is an old cemetery with several family members from the 1800s with the last name Kingsbury. Just above the cemetery is a small overlook, with nothing to see during the warmer months as the view is blocked by the trees; however, there might be a seasonal winter overlook here. It's also possible that his overlook is very old and hence, has been grown-in over the years.

The trail then continues heading north - passing up and over an old stone wall - before ending at the Kingsbury Trail.

Hikers will find parking at the coordinates provided.

Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
