Outdoorsy activity near Portland, ME

Jump to last reply

I just found out friends are in Portland visiting their college-age son. He wants to do something "outdoors" on Monday, but neither they nor he is that familiar with the area (he is just spending the summer working in Maine and has Monday off). They have invited me to come up for the day, and I am trying to help them find a good activity.

I know Mt. Agamenticus is within an hour, so that is one possibility. So is taking the Casco Bay ferry to Peaks Island and then biking or walking around it (or to another island).

Mt. Battie seems bit far for a day trip from Portland (since I will need to leave there around 3:30 to return home for a meeting, unless I can postpone it). Ditto for the North Conway/White Mountains area.

Any other suggestions for outdoor activities within an hour or so of Portland? Could be hiking, biking, kayaking, or similar, but not just sightseeing or lying on the beach. I would say moderate activity level is OK, difficult or strenuous is not as good.

Thanks! (I can look through threads tomorrow, but wanted to go ahead and ask, as all I could remember from them was Mt. Battie.)
