Ridge Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The Maine Audubon Society’s Mast Landing Sanctuary has about 3.0 miles of trails through forest and fields, just 2.0 miles from downtown Freeport. The trails, which are largely in the cover of the woods, are easy to follow and are good spots for beginning snowshoers or those seeking to make a break from the day’s shopping.The Ridge Trail is the longest path through the sanctuary, looping through the property with a little help from a service road. The 1.6-mile circuit leaves from the parking area heading northwest and enters the woods. The Orchard Trail soon enters from the right, but continue on the Ridge Trail and pass through the pines and an old orchard. Forest gives way to field and eventually you pass evidence of days gone by—a stone wall. Just on the other side of the wall is the Link Trail, which provides passage to the 0.5-mile Deer Run Trail. After the stone wall, the trail rises up gradually on a ridge surrounded by evergreens."
