Another day in the park


Another super deal in Maine State Parks series of fun outdoor events, this time it’s at Cobscook Bay State Park in Edmunds Township, (it’s signed off Route 1, north of the Lubec road turnoff). This is one of the hidden gems in Maine’s park system. It’s a gorgeous chunk of ocean-hugging real estate laced with 3.5 miles of trails.

Winter Family Fun Day, on Jan. 23, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m, includes cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating (conditions permitting), snowmobile tote-rides, guided nature interpretive walks, bonfires and hot food. If you don’t have your own equipment, it will be provided. There will be even instruction available. Just dress warmly and show up, it’s that easy.

Fee is $1.50 for ages 12-64, everyone else is free. Yup, that fee includes everything, even lunch.
