We stopped and walked the 1 mile Rachel Carson trail in Wells. Beautiful and peaceful. Take your time, leave the electronics in the car, read the paragraph from the trail map at each stop to your kids.

We took a walk around the 1 mile wildlife trail, and it was very enjoyable. There were people walking the trail, running the trail, and one or two had even stopped at an observation deck to set up cameras in order to photograph some of the wildlife inhabiting the area. We didn't see anything but birds, but it didn't matter; the area was beautiful, and the guidebook was very informative about each point on the trail. Pleasant short walk.
