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.
