Hike Sawyer Mountain
Trailhead on Route 117 on Cape Road, Limington.
Fill your backpack with snacks and plenty of water and hit the trail up Sawyer Mountain. Along the way, you’ll find a 19th century cemetery and an ancient stone fence as well as the occasional red squirrel scurrying around. The 3.6-mile round-trip trek might take you a couple of hours, but heck, what is time anyway? You can also access the mountain by way of Limerick, so head to the Maine Trail Finder site to learn about your options and about countless other hikes in Maine.
