How to Rewild Ourselves - Activities Guide of Maine

If you’ve spent less time on familiar downtown streets and more time among the trails and trees of our public lands during the past year, you’re not alone. Everyone from seasoned hikers to the previously outdoor-averse responded to a collective yearning for space and calm.
