Morse Mountain

Morse Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"Don’t choose between a scenic hike through the woods and a day at the beach; here, you can have it all! This “mountain’s” elevation tops out at 180 feet, but the views from here are actually quite impressive, and this destination has more allure than just its summit: the pleasant, gentle hike leads through lovely terrain before opening onto one of Maine’s most pristine, spectacular beaches. The variety of terrain and lack of facilities will require you to plan ahead, but the preparation will be well worth the effort.

Follow the well-marked, wide old fire road, which is mostly paved with some areas of hard-packed gravel; this section is sturdy-stroller friendly. It leads first through hardwood forest and then passes through wetlands and along the Sprague River Salt Marsh, which provides critical habitat for a wide variety of wildlife. Keep your eyes out for migrating birds, particularly in September and October!"
