Hiking in the Sebago Lakes Area

The mountains of western Maine are covered with pine and deciduous trees and trails that climb steeply or meander gently around lakes. Here are four hiking experiences in and around the Sebago Lakes area.

Bradbury Mountain
Located off Route 9 in Pownal. A short ascent up wooded ledges to bald lookout to the South and a branch trail to the North lookout. A good family hike offering additional hiking trails and cross-country skiing on site. The hike is 3/4 mile to both summits and back with an elevation of 200 feet.

Douglas Mountain Preserve
This 169 acre preserve located in Sebago offers wooded mountain exploration with spectacular views from the summit. Waking trails, picnic area and parking.

Jocky Cap
Located off Route 302 in Fryeburg. An easy 1/3 mile climb (200 feet) to the summit of a naked gray granite outcrop resembling its namesake. The 360° views at the summit are identified on a monument erected by Fryeburg resident and Artic explorer Robert E. Peary.

Maine Wildlife Park
This State-run home for injured or orphaned animals – bear, deer, moose, coyote, raccoon and pheasant – is also a Wildlife Education Center offering self-guided nature trails and picnic facilities. The park is located next to the Dry Mills Fish Hatchery, where brook, brown and lake trout are raised. There is an admission fee.
