Silver Lake Trails

This 67-acre park combines education with recreation, fun with the sun and water.
Trail Activity
2.60 miles, Network
Dirt/Forest Floor


With a self-narrated tour of a species forest, walkers can learn about every tree that is native to our state within their natural environment. And with 6 hiking trails, there is a trail for everyone.

A boat landing allows visitors to arrive by water and spend hours watching deer and partridge in their native surroundings, listen to birds singing and 100 foot pines swaying in a breeze, or photograph beautiful flowers framed in front of a picturesque lake. A convenient parking lot allows visitors to experience Maine's wilderness within 5 minutes of downtown Bucksport.

Trail Tips

Plan Ahead and Prepare
Know your limits – it’s okay to turn back. Your home is the ultimate destination, not the summit.

Trailhead Information

From the bridge in downtown Bucksport, head West on ME-15/Main Street. Turn right on Central Street and drive until you see the Bucksport Public Works Administrative Office building on the left. The turn to Silver Lake is just before that building. Drive behind the building and follow the road to the left and into the back lot with dirt piles. The road continues past here and into large fields, curving to the right before the parking area.
