A self-guided interpretive trail around a salt marsh. Salt marshes are uncommon in Maine because most of the coastline is unprotected from heavy waves; the grasses that build marshes need a stable environment. So these marshes, protected by the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge, are environmental treasures. The educational value and sheer beauty of this hike makes it a must for families with children, and the walk is accessible to people in wheelchairs. General location: Between Wells and Kennebunkport in York County.
