Meet founder and Down East trails
correspondent Rebecca Goldfine
I created Maine by Foot in 2012 as a way to share my love for Maine’s many wonderful trails and to highlight the incredible work of the Maine’s land trusts, land donors, and other conservation organizations. The trails directory has grown to offer nearly 900 guides, with maps, photos, directions, and more. I’m delighted to partner with Down East by special arrangement to share my guide to hiking in the Pine Tree State.
Because I value the experience of discovery, I keep my trail descriptions simple. I’ve included my own maps, to give a sense of the route, along with images of official maps, when they’re available. Where possible, I have added links to the organizations responsible for maintaining these lands. Readers can often find more maps and information on those sites, as well as tidbits about history, ecology, and geology.
