Black Loop Trail

1.4 Miles

Dogs (leashed)

The Black Loop Trail at Clifford Park in Biddeford, Maine is an easy 1.4-mile loop trail that features large rock outcroppings and passes through the woods of Clifford Park.

The trail begins at the parking lot and heads into Clifford Park following black blazes. The trail eventually takes a left-hand turn and heads up a small hill toward the rock outcroppings. Once at the top of the hill, you'll pass large rock outcroppings and some vernal pools of water which often harbor mosquitoes.

The hike continues on following the black blazes - be sure to keep an eye out  for the blazes since you'll be passing other blaze colors and trails along the way. They're not too difficult to follow though.

Eventually, the trail will loop back to the spur trail that leads into the loop. Take the spur trail out and follow the black blazes back to parking.

Parking: Parking can be found at the main lot at the coordinates provided. The lot is large enough to hold about 15 cars.

Bugs: This trail can be very buggy during the warmer months due to stagnant pools of water that sit near some of the rock outcroppings. If you plan to hike this trail, or any trails at Clifford Park during the Summer, plan to bring bug spray.

Pets: Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out.
