Two of Maine's best kept secrets: Hills to Sea Hiking Trail and Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope
You probably have never heard of the 47 mile Hills to Sea Hiking Trail that goes from Unity, Maine to the coastal town of Belfast. That is because the trail is only seven years old!
Yet, this aggressive venture allows hikers of all abilities the opportunity to enjoy Maine at her finest. Hop on the trail anywhere and hike for as long as you wish or start from either end and experience the breathtaking scenery that only Maine can offer.
Accommodations are available along the way. Hills to Sea is an exciting adventure for those who love the outdoors.
However, as spectacular a hike experience that this may be it is not without its share of blood thirsty mosquitoes and black flies in season. Most Mainers and knowledgeable visitors have a bottle of Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope with them. Developed in Maine in 1882 as a repellent for all biting insects, Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope has been protecting people without fail for over 130 years! The unique formula of Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope actually interferes with an insects receptors that detect the carbon dioxide flume that we exhale when we breathe. If they cannot find you, they cannot bite you!
Enjoy your hike along the Hills to Sea trail and Welcome to Maine!
