The Sylvan Trail is a 1.6 mile loop hike in Saco, ME. The trail passes through deciduous and evergreen forest – there are lots of oak trees – and skirts the edge of a farm field.
The first part of the trail is very close to I-95, which may make it seem a little less wild than you might like, but the sound of the cars quickly dies off. This area is still very rural despite it’s proximity to the highway and Saco. I heard turkeys and saw a set of moose tracks when I was there.
The trail looks like it could support mountain biking and winter sports like snowshoeing or cross country skiing. I used it for trail running today and it was great.
