Biking

The Carson Trail at the Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge in Wells, Maine is an easy 1 mile loop hike that leads through a pine forest on the edge of a salt-marsh.

There are about 6 lookout points along the trail that give great views of the salt-marsh. The trail is fairly flat with minimal elevation gain and ascent.

This is a popular trail, especially for dog walkers and strollers. Biking is technically allowed, but may be a bit difficult due to the high foot traffic.

Parking a be a bit tight if you show up later in the morning since the parking lot is not very large. To enjoy this trail during the Summer, show up early.

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 or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
