The hiking trails at Vaughan Woods are some of the most whimsical paths in Maine. The rolling green fields and historical estate welcome you to the woods. An easy hike along well beaten paths leads you to gorgeous stone arch bridges over bubbling streams. Anyone who has hiked Vaughan Woods has experienced the magic for themselves. Locals even call it Hobbit Land for it's resemblance to the make believe place from the books.

The woods are accessible from Litchfield Road or from the parking lot at Hall-Dale High School. Once in, it's only a short walk to the bridges and streams. It's a great location for a photoshoot, just ask the many high school seniors with their headshot taken against the stone dam and amongst the tall pines.
