Geocache Description:


Wolfe's Neck Woods State Park


Osprey Observations

Before you start the Maine State Parks GeoTour, pick up a Maine State Parks Passport at a Maine State Park or Historic Site - available during the summer season. At each official Maine State Park geocache, stamp your passport with the geocache stamp.

Begin by taking the White Pines Trail, one of the state’s only wheelchair-accessible nature trails, across the field, starting at the trailhead by the water bubbler. Bear right once you reach the main part of the trail and follow it to the osprey viewing area across from Googins Island. Take a moment to enjoy the view of the island, look for the osprey nest and ospreys, and read more about these magnificent birds. Follow the rock steps down the start of the Casco Bay Trail to the shore and remember to check for trolls!

After you find the cache, we invite you to check out a guided nature program (call the park or check out our website for more info), take a self-guided nature walk using our informational panels, or have a picnic at one of our many picnic sites or even on the rocks by the shore.
