We engaged in several drives as the weather was not conducive for outdoor activities. This was lovely. We did not stop for Fernand's Neck; that was the plan, but the rain started again.

We took a sneak peak of the lake from one of the sandy shores and then decided to enjoy the view from the top.
The walk up the Maiden Cliff Hill is by itself a pleasant activity. It's a rather easy 45 mn uphill hike, most of it in the shade of beautiful trees. The summit view over Megunticook Lake and the ocean is just stunning, perfect summit reward! We went down the "scenic" trail and were not disappointed. It is a 2 hour activity, comfortable shoes are a must.

I took the hike on the Maiden Cliff trail to get the view of the lake in the picture. It is a mile to the top. The first half is steep but then it gets more level. It is definitely worth the effort as the views are spectacular.

Typical Maine lake with a host of islands and inlets makes for great summer or winter activity. Two good boat launches and one public swimming area. There are many areas to swim and picnic around the lake. Most native Maine fish species can be caught in the lake. Boat launches can be crowded on weekends in the peak summer months.

We love this spot because of the natural beauty, the kids love it because of the warm(ish) water and the dock they can swim out to. Great on a hot summer day, but also lots of hiking for when it's not warm enough to swim.
