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. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
