The Folly Pond Loop Trail in York, Maine is a lightly-trafficked 5 mile hike that circles Folly Pond - one of York's reservoirs. The trail is easy-to-moderate, but the most difficult part about the trail is heading back uphill from the pond back to parking at the end of the hike.

The trail winds down the hill from the parking lot through coniferous forests before reaching Folly Pond. There are some nice views of the reservoir where the trail meets the pond, so the short hike down is worth a visit if you don't have time to do the whole loop.

The trail then leads around Folly Pond for a 3.5 mile loop. Stay left on each trail junction to stay along the Folly Pond Loop. The loop will end along the spur trail that hike in on - just north of the pond. During the Summer, this trail can be very buggy.

Lookout Points: Along the pond are various lookout points from the trail.

Note: The GPS data does not include the hike out from the end of the loop, which is about 0.6 miles. Plan for just about 5 miles for this entire hike.

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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time ๐Ÿ•ฆ, money ๐Ÿ’ฐ, and effort (including espresso shots โ˜•) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free ๐ŸŽ‰

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!๏ธ
