Hikes In and Around Waldoboro, Maine


Common Loon Ripples the Calm Waters of Medomak Pond in Waldoboro

Waldoboro is an historic seaside village that once served as a ship building center on the Medomak River. Located an hour and twenty minutes north of Portland and three hours and twenty minutes from Boston, Waldoboro is home to the Waldo Theatre, which offers a wide range of entertainment for all ages, Borealis Breads, where each loaf is “an edible work of art,” and the quintessential  Moody’s Diner, still a Maine favorite over 80 years after it first opened–we highly recommend that you save room for pie. And once you’re stuffed with pie, head outside for a walk or hike and explore the mill ponds, rivers and saltmarshes of the area.
