I’m kicking myself for not visiting this Holden path community sooner

Wildflowers glowed within the late afternoon solar. As I walked alongside the sting of a discipline, cows wandered lazily, munching on grass. A chipmunk squeaked, then disappeared inside an previous rock wall. And all I might suppose was: Why did I wait so lengthy to go to?

The stunning trails at Hart Farm in Holden are a reasonably latest growth. Nonetheless, I really feel foolish for not exploring them sooner. I stay shut by, and it’s a beautiful spot for photographing nature — whether or not its birds, mushrooms or the best way the wilderness takes over the crumbling ruins of a homestead.

The farm and path community are positioned on Copeland Hill, which gives an open view of the distant Appalachian Mountains. The farm dates again to the mid-1800s, and due to the work of two Maine land trusts, it’s nonetheless working at this time.
