Monhegan Hiking Trails


Starting from the village, well-maintained footpaths draw the hiker across meadows, through forests, to surf-worn cliffs. Don't miss the ethereal beauty of Cathedral Woods. Located on the northern flyway for migrating birds, Monhegan is well-known among birding enthusiasts for rare bird sightings. Bring your binoculars. Before starting your walk, stop at Monhegan House to pick up a hearty trail lunch (vegetarian selections are available). Savor your picnic perched on the cliffs overlooking the crashing surf, or plunked down in a meadow of wildflowers. Monhegan House is near the dock. Walk up the hill and turn right at Lupine Gallery. Hiking maps may be purchased for a nominal fee and are available at the boat ticket booths, local shops, and trail-boxes around the island. Hikers will need to wear appropriate footwear for rugged hiking.
