Where: Hermon, Maine
What: Ecotat Gardens is an 88 acre preserve with gardens and trails leading through an arboretum.
Trails: The preserve offers a mile of trails leading through woods and gardens. Our focus today was less hiking and more photography, but if you are interested here is a trail map.
Tick Index: The preserve has a tick warning sign, and the woodland trail seemed a bit overgrown on our visit, so we focused on the gardens.
Commentary: My son had his wisdom teeth taken out recently so we were looking for an opportunity to get outside but not expend much energy. We spent around an hour here exploring the gardens and photographing insects and flowers.
