Hiking Maine | Hirundo Wildlife Refuge Trail

Spring hikes can be beautiful but challenging.  As soon as you pause, you are swarmed with mosquitoes. While the bug spray keeps the biting at bay, it is still distracting to have hundreds of mosquitoes buzzing around your face as you’re trying to take a sip of water. The mosquitoes are especially thick in forest hikes with nearby water sources.

So, of course, this past weekend we decided to head to the Hirundo Wildlife Refuge. The trail we picked starts off near a stagnant pond before heading deeper into the woods and then turning along a stream. No surprise the mosquitoes were bad but at least the views were beautiful.

For the next month or so, we’ll be sticking to coastal hikes where there are less mosquitoes. I do miss the bug free joy of our winter hikes but know that spring is leading to warmer, beautiful days to come. There is plenty of fun to be had in Maine in the summer.
