Trail Notes

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 independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. 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! ✌
