Little Chebeague Island Hike

Camping Allowed

Lookout/Views

Dogs (leashed)

The Little Chebeague Island Hike on Chebeague Island in Maine is a moderate 7.4-mile out-and-back hike that leads out to Little Chebeague Island and features beautiful views of the islands outside of Portland.

This trail is a bit different from the summit hikes I normally post, but it's a great adventure so I thought it deserved some attention.

Little Chebeague Island is a small island off the coast of Great Chebeague Island. You can get there by taking the ferry from Portland and getting off at Great Chebeague, then at low tide only, you can walk across the sand bar and get to Little Chebeague. There are trails throughout the island, along with a small number of campsites that are free to stay at. This track shows the route from the ferry dock, across the sand bar and onto the island, and includes some of the trails on Little Chebeague.

The most important thing about this hike is getting your timing right. Choosing the right ferry to get you to the sandbar at low tide (you have about a 2, maybe 3 hour window surrounding low tide to cross before you're stuck for another 12 hours).

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

Camping: There are a small number of campsites that are free to stay at. If you're camping you need to bring all the water you'll need, because there's none on the island.

Water Sources: You need to bring all the water you'll need, because there's none on the island, whether you're camping or not.
